Another couple of magnificent ocean snaps! I'd like to have lunch at the "Bar das Avencas!"

That is an extreme high tide. Love that sign of the wineglass fish. Yummm to both wine and the catch of the day.

What a cute sign!

Fantastic, JM!

Beautiful pictures of the sea!
Is it is almost as if the sea is eating the land..... Fantastic.

Best regards
Asta

These are superbly composed shots. The first one captures the ambiance of the beach and the bar and the colors jump out at you...and the sign if posed so nicely against the water and the ship in the distance!

Great work, as always!

And that beach looks awfully inviting...but not too many people around...

Beautiful beach. That looks like another great place to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the sun and water.

Gorgeous beach even at high tide. Is the bar sign in the water? Beautiful colors there. MB

I love that bar sign! What a great location, I'd be happy to sit and drink there all day with a view like that!

Let's do lunch. With it being winter here I am beginning to sigh for a warm beach.

Hilda said...

Beautiful!
Even if the weather is too cold for swimming or sunbathing, it looks like a wonderful place to hang out, especially with a bar that's open year-round.

I'm also for the wineglass fish. I wonder how many guests they would have during, let's say, January?

Esta praia é fantástica!!!
A 2ª foto está demais, o posicionamento da placa está mto bom. Não consigo perceber é o que está na linha do horizonte do lado direito...é capaz de ser um petroleiro :|

Beach and a bar, good combo.

High tide indeed. Perfect for having a drink while getting your feet cooled.

And while I post gloomy photos everyday (blame the rain), you always come with bright photos to cheer my days up. The bar, they better open it all year round :).
