Come Along and Walk With Me
A good friend and fellow blogger recently reminded me to do this post when she, recently, did one of her own. The weather here has been spectacular. I am a sun person. I need lots and lots of it. So, I take advantage of going for a power walk whenever I can. The Atlantic is directly across the street from our house. So, I thought I'd take a brief moment to share with you some pictures of what a walk looks like to me. These pictures do not do the scenery justice.
Here's a peak into my world during a walk anyway (but, really 100x's more beautiful):
I don't know the name of the tree pictured above. But, as I walk back home, I find myself veering off the side of the ocean and onto a back street where trees such as the one above are aligned. It's aromatherapy at it's best. Almost a lilac smell - but, not quite. Sometimes the floral scent mixes with several other scents that I will take with me, memories of sorts in my mind, when I leave Portugal - the smell of the sea, baking bread and grilled fish.
