We are home at The Holler now, but it is still, cheers to you from Portugal & Spain~

  1. We visited the nature preserve in Malaga, Spain region some years ago. Missded the nellie-dancers, though. Found a local shop where we purchased ham, cheese, and bread for lunch, just before he closed for siesta. Great memories.

  3. What a beautiful end to your trip Cindy!! The thing that made me most homesick for Spain were the red poppies. They grew thick in the fields around the pueblo where we lived!! You to their vibrant colors just right!! Thanks for sending off all these photos!

  4. I really like the vibrant colors of the clothing in the local folks who live in these quaint and beautiful towns, Cindy. I am so happy you seem to have had good weather!
    The pretty pink flamingoes are perfectly captured with even the circles around their eyes displayed! I cannot help loving the sweet and oh so soft baby ducklings, too. Thank you for stopping by my posts, as I run through saying catch up as often as work allows. ❤ Peace and so glad you are safe and sound home again, Cindy.

    • I have no idea why your posts weren’t showing up in my reader. At some point I said, “Where’s Robin?”
      I went to your blog and saw all I missed.
      Troubling…..

  7. So pretty! Cindy, thanks for liking my post about Irena’s cookbook – I would love it if you could share with your friends! It’s a good book – and she’s pretty poor:) Her son has actually ‘borrowed’ nearly all her money and she’s just about broke.
