Oeiras downtown

Yes, the title is right. This is Ribeira da Lage, the small river that runs through the city. The shot was taken at Jardim Municipal, the downtown public park.

It is a nice place.
I like the clear water of the river.
(water over there looks deep blue.)

Looks like a nice place to escape to and enjoy some quiet time.

Dina said...

Sweet. Every city needs a quiet corner like this.

You know, JM, I'm constantly amazed at the beauty that is omnipresent in your community!

Sharon said...

It looks like a peaceful space in the heart of the city.

When I saw your photo on the thumbnail, I thought to myself, "JM must have taken a trip out to the country, instead of the urban and coastal scenes that are more common for your his site." I did a double-take upon seeing your caption about this being downtown. A nice oasis.

By the way, I have started a series of photos on my site from Tortuguero, although I cannot match some of the wildlife photos that you took there that are shown on your travel site.

Lovely place. Could have been in the countryside.

So beautiful. A pretty retreat right in the middle of town. MB

We also have a small brook running through our town. Few people take time to really stop and notice it, but it's a little jewel. This photo captures your town's jewel beautifully.

I can see that Oeiras citizens have a great life quality indeed! It's so nice!

It seems you surprised us all with the title of your post today. I enjoy the parks and gardens within a city ... they seem so much more precious in that context.

Beautiful and calming. These green areas in cities are so important and it's nice to see a place as lovely as this!
