Another week of Portugal to catch up on then its back home.
The villa we stayed at on this trip is on a golf complex. They have a lot of these on the Algarve. We like to watch golf so this is perfect for us and it was interesting to wander past the practicing. And I really had to stop myself hopping into those cute little buggies…..
Out for lunch.
I took the laptop so I could work on a photobook I’ve been building up for a couple of years now. Also love this shot for the iced lemon water herb tea combo.
We went out for the afternoon and saw a Roman bridge in the town of Silves.
And had another visit to the golf club bar which overlooks the course.
I have long been a fan of silhouette photos. I think I first saw Becky Higgins do them. She even has an instagram hastag! Gav and I had been to see the sunset at the St Vincent lighthouse and as we walked back to the car there was the perfect spot to try and get one of these photos. I think for a first attempt this was pretty good. Go Gav!
And this had to be documented. Washers and dryers outside! Oh for that sort of weather.
And then home again and this sweet boy.
Can’t resist picking these up.
I know this generation are attached to their phones so this kind of documenting is inevitable but I like to think she does it a little bit because of me!
Not quite in focus but loved this macro show of a home-grown Zinnia.
I didn’t realise the colours of the Zinnia match the colours of the tomatoes till I put them side by side here. These are some homegrown ones too. We didn’t think any would ripen because of the blight the plants developed but I was happy to harvest a bowlful.
A selfie from a different angle and showing off that wonderful Dahlia flower.
Family over to celebrate two birthdays. Here are three of my sister four children. Love them so.
Okay so that was that.
