First, for those who are new to the blog, thanks for dropping by and second, it´s Flyday Friday once again! While everyone´s bundled up from head to toe on this side of the world, let me entice you with some beach photos which I took while we were on a short trip in Portugal last October.
Peniche - a coastal town in the center of Portugal and according to Wiki , this town has one of the best surfing locations in the world. Sand dunes, clear blue skies and flying sea gulls over sparkling sea water, isn´t it nice to dream of summer again amidst the cold rain or the falling snow right now? ;) What do you think? ;)
Nazaré, another coastal and famous surfing town in Portugal. Although this bustling beachside town reminds me a little of jampacked Benidorm in Spain, I wouldn´t mind spending my afternoon siesta by the beach while listening to the sound of the gentle waves. ;)
Since I´m an Old World fanatic, we capped off the trip at the Alcobaça Monastery, a Roman Catholic mediaeval monastery and by the way, also UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1989 due to it´s artistic and historical importance .
The monastery and the church are one of the first gothic buildings in Portugal and well preserved. Here´s a look at the church nave leading to the altar:
