About these days

in #photographylast month

Time to explore southern Portugal a little more. It's been a few years since I came to spend a few days here; it's normally crowded during the summer months, but this year the crowd is a little less: a golden opportunity! And so much to explore: nature reserves, long beaches with warm water, typical sweets! I even found plastic-eating fishes!

This one was located at the entrance of a well known beach. It's a great initiative to bring awareness to the plastic problem. And judging by how well fed he was, seems the message is getting across!

As for the beach, just as I pictured it: not that crowded, water as perfect temperature. And with the added bonus of a cool sunset!

And I also visited a beach I absolutely love, and hadn't visited for years: praia do Barril!
What's so special about this beach? First, you have to go through a path between wetlands, filled with wildlife! And you can do it by foot as I did, or in a little train.

As for the beach itself... huge, just huge. With the anchors that make it unmistakable!

Are the sunset views more to your liking?

I hope my zoom camera captured some.of the wildlife decently, but have to reach my computer when I get back home to sure. In the meantime... I'll be enjoying my home country!

Beautiful! Cheers

Se é! 😉 Abraço!

Ohhhh those wetlands and anchors... sooo cool!

It's a great area. The weather is still awesome for some beach time, and I'm inclined to say that although some rain is coming, we'll still be able to enjoy the beach for a few weeks!

I love that sunset with the anchors so stunning. Such a beautiful area I need to put that on my travel list.
