This is the week of the letter “L”. The light in the photo below is right across from my family apartment in Lisbon. It must’ve originally been powered by gas (a couple of hundred years ago), lit each evening by the gas-lighters. Eventually electrified, not sure when, it’s a beacon of Home for me.
Sam’s Giardino desert lodge in Swakopmund is gorgeous and serves a great breakfast.
The lighthouse at Cabo S. Vicente close to Sagres in Portugal is the most southern point of the European continent. Ahead is the Atlantic Ocean until you hit the North American continent. Another beacon, this time alerting ships’ captains of danger.
A lemon from our tree.
A welcome sprig of lavender in my room at the Pat Busch Mountain Reserve.
Hello all, I’m on holiday and my intention is to blog as often as possible. I’m taking lots of pics and some of them will make it onto these pages.
I’m in Portugal and what’s playing havoc with my internal clock is the fact that the sun sets well after 20h30. Even in summer it is dark at this time in South Africa, so when it gets dark where I am now, I realise how late it is already.
I will post as often as I can – I did the WordPress Weekly Challenge – you can find it here. Hope you enjoy it.
