Pretty as a picture!

A wading gull in an azure pool,
bird’s-eye view,
of the Douro.
Spring buds bloom,

while sipping port,
in the peaceful town,
of Porto.
Cheers to you from Portugal~

  1. Can I be nosy and ask what type of camera you used? Excellent, excellent shots…but that is only possible with a good photographer first and foremost!

    • Oh yes, fabulous food. We always say the same thing when we are in Europe, “Why can’t American food taste this good?”
      It is because people shop daily at fresh food markets that feature local growers and bakers. The difference in the taste is significant as you well know.

  2. Gorgeous pictures, as always.

    Any idea what the instrument is in picture #4? I assume it’s playing music like a player piano.

  3. Ahhh!!! Qué bonito paseo por Oporto. Portugal tiene un encanto especial. Espero que hayas disfrutado mucho, mucho en este viaje a la Península Ibérica. Un abrazo amiga. ❤ ❤

  4. Liebe Cindy da hast du aber super Landschaftsfoto gemacht sieht ganz toll aus und dann die ah Aufnahme von der Möwe einfach spitze wünsche dir eine gute Nacht und schönen Sonntag Klaus in Freundschaft

  5. You’ve captured the heart of Porto with these photos ~ an idyllic city, almost as if it was from a fairytale from the looks of this 🙂 I would imagine you doing quite well in this city, beautiful views of quaint buildings and houses sipping port while overlooking the water…sigh… Wish you the best this Sunday 🙂

  6. I love the co-hesiveness of the city, being that most of the roof-tops are red tile or perhaps brick. It makes for beautiful scenery. I also fancy the floral arrangement, so spare but the beauty of each Calla can be admired. Really, anything might look fantastic facing the hall of columns like that. What a gorgeous place. How do you decide where to stay when you travel? You must have a great agent 😀

    • Yes it is a hand cranked music box that plays sheet music. Kinda amazing huh! I love planning trips and don’t use an agent. I read tripadvisor customer reviews and pay attention to formal ratings, location, and traveler photographs. I look for deals on prices through second parties like booking.com and hotels.com. Planning a trip for me is half the fun.

  7. Cindy, I really liked the sensitive elements in the post and your trip has such unique sights. I also liked the same parts which others mentioned, the delicate flower bud, the waterfront with closely placed charming houses (villas) and the music playing woman with child, so precious! ❤

  8. Woooow
    Nice shots Cindy 😉
    Planning on working on my own self hosted blog soon. Would be needing support from wonderful bloggers around the community very soon.
    I would really appreciate 😉
    Great work on your blog as always hun
