…. A UNESCO World Heritage site. Porto’s train station is glorious, covered in tiles which tell of the local history. A train ride took us to the pretty site of the castle and the palace, through narrow streets and up challenging hills. Join us on our walk.
Some treats fron today for you…….
Trees on the skyline seen from the boat trip.
A fabulous Dylanesque busker and a cat.we stayed so long listening , we lost the group but we found them again at the top of the hill. Ourfirstday has been fabulous full of information and fun. Our team leader is brilliant! 🙂
It’s a five hour train journey from Cornwall to the metropolis and we love every minute, watching the world go by, reading the paper and our novels. Here is a glimpse from the train of our glorious green countryside.
The Harvest Moon was glorious last night. I had thought it was the Hunter’s Moon but then I discovered this:
This year’s autumnal equinox came on September 22nd, making October 5th the Harvest moon because it is the closest full moon in the calendar.While October is usually reserved for the Hunter’s moon, this year we got a late Harvest moon.The Hunter’s moon will take place on November 3.
I love how Hydrangeas are just as lovely as they start to fade.
Our suffragette Garden has purple and white at the same time for a day or two! Spring is its best season but the Japanese Anemones are just still in flower as theTibouchina Urvilleana have just started to bloom.
I spotted this ‘pasty’ in the car park after singing this morning.
We went to Porthtowan for a cliff walk and supper at The Blue Bar tonight as I wanted to see the sunset. I loved one of the house names up the side of the path.
The waves were good and splashy against the rocks and the sunset was gorgeous. Click on a photo see the detail.
P.S. As I was writing this, a message came in on Facebook which made me very happy. Apparently it is World Teachers’ Day and one of my ex pupils has named me for the help I gave her. It is lovely to be remembered so.
