Paddling Around Aveiro…..

can be fatiguing.
There is so much to see and do,

that sometimes it’s hard to keep up,
which is why some sit it out on the sidelines,
and others prefer traveling by boat.
The fit choose to walk,


but whatever your mode of transport,

Aveiro is visual candy!

Cheers to you from Aveiro Portugal~

  1. They use bright colours in Portugal, don’t they? I noticed the Chiwawa has nail polish on, and she is sitting on ‘frozen’ chair! And t looks like there was some seaweed by the water? I hope you are having a lovely time, Cindy!


    • You are observant Maiko. The canals are saltwater and full of fish and the Aveiro people harvest and sell the salt. They cook with the seaweed and it is quite good. Cheers to you Maiko and thanks for stopping by~

  2. Visual candy is right Cindy! What a vibrant, colorful city. And thanks for including those cute ducklings and doggie! Enjoy your time there! ❤


    • I photographed Indian Ring Necked Parrots and Monk Parrots in Spain and will be posting them soon. I was shocked to see them. They are not native in any of the places I saw them, but are thriving and breeding now in the wild. You would have loved seeing them Lynn and I will post soon. Be well my friend!

  3. What outstanding shots, Cindy! Those fuzzy ducks are darling, but part of me feels a bit sorry for the “dolled-up” pooch in her ‘Frozen’ chair! Love the reflection of these colorful buildings in the water, too!


  4. Bonsoir CINDY c’est très beau ce partage de la vie animalière
    Je viens chez toi comme par magie
    J’adore venir voir les nouveautés sur ton blog
    A mon tour
    Je vais essayer de faire rêver
    Dans ce rêve
    Tu y trouveras ma douceur
    Tu y trouveras du bonheur
    Tu te trouveras dans mon petit monde
    De la joie et du partage
    Même si ce n’est qu’un petit rêve

    Il y aura quelques instants sur ton visage un sourire
    Qui te permettra de réchauffer une partie de ton cœur
    Gros bisous , Bernard


  5. Well now, isn’t this just ducky ??? 🙂 From your pics, it would seem that a mallard is a mallard, is a mallard, no matter where you find them. The boats and the buildings were beautiful too, Cindy. 🙂


    • Exactly right. I have seen them everywhere except Antarctica! Today we are going to the Tagus Estuary which is one of Europe’s most important bird reserves. I will certainly see mallards but hopefully flamingos and a whole lot more!


  6. Cindy – the colors – are the best – but my fav is that you can almost feel the soft feathers with your clear photos – really nice…


  7. Liebe Cindy das sind ja wirkliche traumhaft Fotos von der Entenfamilie wunderschön toll hab eine gute Nacht das wünsche ich dir Klaus in Freundschaft


  8. I see you’ve made some great new friends there ~ great photo of the ducklings, great paddling partners for sure. A wonderful set of photos, love the canal and storefront shot of Aveiro, truly is visual candy! Nothing quite like following along on your adventures (even if a bit late!). Cheers to you Cindy ~


  9. Gasp! Can you imagine living here, everyday walking around the water, beautiful boats and colourful buildings. It’s like a Art Journal come to life. Spectacular! Is it very quite there or are you perhaps up early to get these shots? There’s hardly anyone around except the sweet little ducks. They’re so cute when they paddle around. Wonderful to start my day with you in Europe x B


    • For me the crack of dawn is 9:30am! Aveiro is like an uncrowded little Venice. In Venice a vaparetto ride costs a boatload (sorry! 😉 and the crowds are legion. Aveiro was sleepy, peaceful and uncrowded when we visited. I don’t like crowds, so Aveiro is just perfect. Cheers to you and have a wonderful week!
