Picture My Week – 4th – 10th September Appreciating my surroundings September 11, 2013 by portugalholidayguide Leave a comment The grapes on my terrace are ripening fast , and the smell is lovely I have enjoyed sitting under them playing my guitar drinking tea and appreciating the beautiful view I have After giving my window frames a final lick of paint , I have my new blinds up . and made some some cute little owls for the cord pulls I went to another new river beach in a place called Folques for a swim and have continued to paint sea scapes . I want to try painting some river scenes soon So I took an early morning walk along the river Ceira in Gois to study the colours , shadows and reflections in the water . I took lots of photos , and attracted a few ducks. The village fields are looking lovely and colourful. Courgettes marrows and pumpkins are getting bigger by the day and the bumpy old road to the village has been re- surfaced this week . It now feels like a carpet to drive on !
