Carvoeiro, Portugal

Carvoeiro, Portugal

Right at this moment, it’s sunset at my little outpost on the world map and I’m reminiscing about this moment of magic on the southern coast of Portugal.

Out for a sunset stroll, we found the boardwalk in Carvoeiro. Looking east … a blue-green sea below sandstone cliffs. Looking west … a glowing sky becoming more radiant by the second.

There is always that brief, exact moment when the colors hit peak saturation before letting go and drifting over the horizon.

One last look as Carvoeiro rested under the light.

I’m late for the Rise/Set Weekly Photo Challenge but didn’t want to miss sharing this coastal moment, real and unfiltered. It’s nice to resurface and take a breath after a long stretch of work. Now all I need is a bottle of Madeira wine.

  1. Mmm it is such a very pretty part of the world. I love the wooden beach boardwalks in Portugal ~ we were at this same lovely spot during off season a few years back. Thanks for sharing your memories amd dramatic photos.

  2. Sooo pretty – I can see why you’d want to revisit these! Miss seeing you around here … although I’ve been pretty darn absent myself. Hoping my trip starting tomorrow prompts a few new posts!
