Daily walks are such therapy for me and with the ever-changing landscape, which includes blossoming trees and plants, I find myself constantly in a zen place. What a wonderful thing that is!
Yesterday was a day of morning errands (for all of us), a pot luck lunch at our place, with even more left-overs from the left-overs!, a long countryside walk (Pat, Gary and me), then, quiet evenings for all of us.
Just recently these were delicate looking cream colour blossoms, now they are deep brown beautiful looking pods. Isn’t Mother Nature grand?
The cistus are already starting to bloom, which is much earlier than usual. I expecting with this early evolution of everything this year, we are in for a hot spring.
Today it returned to 20 degrees, the sky was deep blue and almost cloudless. A perfect day for a visit to Faro Beach.
Just look at this happy bunch. Pat and Gary’s first trip to the beach….didn’t take long to get those shoes off and toes in the sand.
There was one lone fishing boat working away not far from the shoreline.
If you notice, the shoes are now in the hands, not on the feet!
She debated for quite some time but eventually, she went in!
Sun bathers were enjoying the heat of the sun and the calmness of the winds.
This group of young men were having a grand giggle at something.
I liked seeing this family. The dog ran, happily barking into the sea while the baby was a bit more reluctant.
The five of us enjoyed a lengthy walk then Marc and Diane headed back to Wax to secure a table on the patio while Pat, Gary and myself continued for another half an hour or so. The sand felt wonderful under the feet and the lapping sound of the sea a welcome addition. The tide was slowly starting to come in.
We had agreed to head to the square for a cing a sept. Ana surprised Marc with a box of vol-au-vent, which for those of you that don’t know, is a small hollow case of puff pastry.
Guess who will be coming for turkey ala king on Sunday???
Definitely up to something!!! I think it MIGHT have to do with an upcoming birthday!!
I love seeing the older men sitting and watching all the traffic each afternoon.
A couple of lovely shots on the way home…
I loved the tiny spot of sunlight on the one pot.
Oh gosh, I could make a comment about ancient things but then they would get even with me so……just admire the lovely door and window and not the big smirks on both of these models!!! I won’t tell you what I told them to imagine just before I pressed the shutter!!!
