Beach, options.

Beach Football – Los Angeles Public Library

Hmmm, the humidity has dropped. The first college football game has been played.
dievca is still interested in heading to the beach.
Maybe she can combine the summer and fall activities together?
Nah, after last night, she’d rather just sleep in the sun.

An unexpected pleasure – Sunflowers

“True friends are like bright sunflowers that never fade away, even over distance and time.”

Marie Williams Johnstone

An unexpected pleasure in the middle of NYC. dievca grew up with a neighbor who grew large sunflowers in their backyard – it is a childhood pleasure to see one. There is a second sunflower that is so heavy with seeds, the head is drooping.

 


Oriente

Talk to the hand.

Meow!

The most clouds seen in a week.

Relaxing and stretching on the Tagus River.

Killing time while waiting for a friend to fly into Lisbon…dievca wandered Oriente.

On the Go~Good Morning!


3 Euro = coffee and an egg custard filled croissant
I didn’t know why the croissant was squashed and had powdered sugar on it.
It didn’t matter – it got me going.


An Eclectic View of Lisbon


A day to lay low…

Lisbon is a lot of walking on hills paved with cobblestones.
Gorgeous views, excellent wine, heat, plus a lot of people in August.

Avoiding the trams due to crowds

Age comes into it when you pull a hamstring and your hips/back step in to carry the load. Makes for a really hurting 7th day.

dievca is laying low, stretching and trying to get her muscles to relax before the flight on Sunday… Wish her luck. XO


problema?


Is it the tide? Is it a dry dock?
Or is it a big problema?
