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!

      1. And so does Google images. I’ve just spent the afternoon on home turf via my old blog posts, so coastal draws me – to say nothing of a certain inhabitant!

  3. That little tart tells a story and I knew it must be Portugal. Every country seems to have a tart of some distinction. Great pics of a bright sunny morning.

I would love to hear from you . . .
