Lisbon from the River Tagus
 


 
 An old brewery now a museum
 
Padrao dos Descobrimentos
commemorating the discoveries of Christopher Columbus

 Moody, misty mid morning.
Our beautiful ship - Balmoral.

The misty pic is the award-winner. Hope you're well + happy.

Exile: yes thank you I am both well and happy but seem to get busier and busier. Back to the book this week. Promise.

Wonderful photos and I love the Bridge Photo.
I know about Lisbon, mentioned in many books and films but have never really seen any photos of the city.
This is not how I thought Lisbon looked so now I will google.
This trip sounds like so much fun.

cheers, parsnip

Love the Moody, misty mid morning pic. Everything you could want in an arty pic AND alliteration to go with it :)

Pat said...

Parsnip: it looks different every time I go but the Columbus monument is a useful landmark. It has a good atmosphere and lovely pastries.

Kim: Thank you Kim. I shall wallow in your praise for the rest of the day.

Beautiful with fog and mist. Can you go inside the Columbus monument?

Pat said...

Granny Annie: to my shame I don't know as I have always seen it en passant but I'm betting no.

I'm sending one of my people to explore it at the end of March.

Beautiful shoots, Pat.

I love the Monument, and how the bridge fades at a distance. :)

Lovely, Pat!
The fog and mist are nicer when they're part of a holiday!!
