Joan Elizabeth said...

And what were you on to get this perspective ... a boat?

Dina said...

The train is that close to everything (and everybody)?
A real action photo. Nice!

Wow what a beautiful beach. the water looks soo wonderful I can barely see anything else.

Regarding the theft of photos it sure has snowballed. Everyone on CDP seems to have been taken. I hope not yours. MB

Sharon said...

Many layers in this photo and you've described them perfectly. Those are some grand homes at the top.

@Joan Elizabeth: You can see a 'slice' of the pier I was at in the bottom right corner of the photo.

@Dina: It seems the railroad is very cose to everything else in the photo but actually it's not, you will feel perfectly safe when you visit this coast! :-)))

Do we have time for a quick swim when the train stops at the station!!!

Wow, this brings back memories. One of my first ever train rides in Portugal, early 80es, on a interrail trip through Europe.

Oh, I think I could retire in this city of vowels. Saturday's reflection of the lone palm tree leaves me speechless and gasping to take a breath. Stunning.

What a lovely beach. It looks so inviting today. Do you ever get real waves there, or is it protected?

VP said...

It's a nice train, or it was few years ago. I remember that we walked some of the way back along the beaches and it was a very pleasant stroll.

JM said...

@Tapirgal: You can count on big waves on solstices, equinoxes and winters. Many parts of the stone and concrete Sea Promenade were torn down last winter.

Jacob said...

It took me a minute to see the train...but what a fine beach ... and it doesn't look very crowded ... Super photo, JM!

That water is gorgeous! Cold or not? That looks like the perfect spot to spend an afternoon.

I hope to visit this peaceful and beautiful beach, and stay a few days in summer.
Of course the train is interesting !

The sun-lovers are out on the beach. Summer must be here!

Gunn said...

I started thinking it must be a nice place to stay in one of these hotels...
Well,they are private:-(
Anyway, a beautiful place!!

Would've never noticed the train if you hadn't pointed it out. Noisy beach, huh? Beautiful photo.
