Morning in the Algarve

Imagine your typical morning. You might picture your favorite coffee mug. A streak of sunlight coming through your bedroom window. Or the roosters in your backyard that sound off at 5 am. Or a photo from breakfast of a pastéis de nata, a delicious Portuguese egg tart pastry, while on holiday in Lisbon?

This is Cheri’s challenge over at the Daily Post. Well, I can’t do Lisbon, but I can do pasteis de nata, in Vila Real de Santo Antonio!

por3While I was there, a peaceful morning called me to the riverside.

And here’s a blue sky Tavira morning

      1. Oh yes, very different. I can’t even describe one. Middle looks like your pastry but instead of a pastry container something that’s a cross between puff pastry and a Yorkshire pudding. There’s only one Bakewell Pudding shop as far as I know. But they post them!

  1. Altough I am Portuguese i have never been to Algarve . What i did do is eat Alot and i mean ALOT of those pasteis de nata!!! There are not one portuguese person that dosn’t like them. and with cinnamon on top is just devine ! 🙂

      1. I can buy them here in Switzerland too but yes very expensive so I treat myself only once in a while 🙂

  2. A charming blue and white morning. I love the wandering line along the path and the shellfish harvesters particularly. You are as persuasive as Jo in tempting travel to this part of the world!

I would love to hear from you . . .
