Thanks for that, it's so dreary here today! Wonderful vista!

Sailor Girl said...

Fabulous!!

It used to be «Fateixa», and now it sells pizza, doesn't it? Have not been there yet.

JM said...

Yes, Sailor Girl, the place has now an italian name I don't remember; I especially like the thick cushions area, very chill out! :-)

Oh, these photos fill me with such a wondrous sense of expectation. Great shots!

Olivier said...

la première photo fait rêver, elle est magnifique, et j'aime cette lumiere.

the first picture is a dream, she is beautiful, and I love this light.

Jacob said...

Very peaceful and calm, too...and a nice place to spend a few hours in the sun (not too many, though!)...you must have taken these early in the morning...no people!

Prece ao vento (Fernando Mendes)

"Vento que balança as palhas do coqueiro,
Vento que encrespa as ondas do mar
Vento que assanha os cabelos da morena
Me trás notícia de lá...
Vento que assovia no telhado
Chamando para a lua espiar
Vento que na beira lá da praia
Escutava o meu amor a cantar...

Hoje estou sozinho e tu também
Triste, mas lembrando do meu bem

Vento diga, por favor,
Aonde se escondeu o meu amor
Vento diga, por favor,
Aonde se escondeu o meu amor..."

Hello JM!
Wonderful place, you are right, it's perfect to face the sun, the life, spring and love!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Nice beach photos. I like the sun and shadows.

Just wishing I can relax on that beach with a cocktail. Great photo.

Jarart said...

If only I could transport myself into one of those chairs!

willow said...

I could use a little bit of that right now!

Virginia said...

Oh yes, that's what I"m talking about! Put me in one of those chaises JM and leave me all day long. Spectacular beach and shot.

Jill said...

What a gorgeous spot, and I love the crowd, just my size.

Dusty Lens said...

The perfect place to relax and soak in some sunlight.

Beautiful calm and nostalgic photos!

Lisa Wilson said...

Just perfect! I am surprised all of the chairs are empty. Did you ask anyone to leave? HAHA!

Pam said...

It looks so peaceful and inviting. These photos make a wonderful advertisement for visiting here. Have a great weekend.

Julie said...

I really like the repetition of the top shot, JM. I was told last weekend that my daughter and SiL are planning a trip to Portugal in 2010.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The top shot is wonderful. Lovely balance and oh so inviting.

very dreamy but hard to believe to believe there is no one sitting in the lounge chairs at such a wonderful time of the day to watch the sun over the water. I am glad you enjoyed the setting of Chihuly's Saffron Tower. it is unique. I am also glad you enjoyed the butterfly. I have one of the most interesting butterflies ever that I will post in two days.

Mike said...

Nice rows of chairs and palms to lead the eye along. I wanna go to the beach! More snow tomorrow here.

What a fine beach!

Great composition.

Marc said...

Looks almost ready for the tourist season...

Marie-Noyale said...

How I wish I would be one of those palm trees... or may be lying on one of the lounges...

Hey Zé! Não conheço esta novidade...Aonde é exactamente?! Ex-fateixa? Bjs
