The beach at Baleal, Portugal, is covered in dunes
That are environmentally protected.
One evening, I went out at sunset
To see the dunes rising against the sky
Like the humps of camels
While the sun burst forth
In wonderful windows of light.

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.
The kids and I are kicking off the first week of summer
By going to a surf camp in Peniche, Portugal,
And learning something new: surfing.
I’ve got Our World ready to go up next week
(Hope there are no problems!)
I won’t be around for about ten days or so
So won’t be commenting on your blogs.
Catch you later!
Watching a flock of birds
Dance across the fiery canopy of the sky
On flame-tipped wings;
And flying beyond the silver sliver of the moon
Is pure poetry.

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,
With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.
I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?
And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset
Than with a good furry friend!

Sometimes a sunset
Is so breathtaking
That all you can do
Is stand there humbled
And drink in all the wonder.

Back in February, we took a trip to visit a new friend
Living on the shore of a large inland lake.
Some boats were marooned in the harbour
And people strolled out onto the frozen lake
To enjoy the view.
I felt all buoyed up
By the dazzling snow and sunlight.
Just as we were leaving,
The sun made a glorious spectacle of itself
Casting a golden glow over this winter’s tale.

Back in October,
The sky turned lilac
And the water filled
With slender ribbons and hearts made of clouds.
And underneath all that splendour,
The ducks swam on purple velvet.

Take a sky in Venice:
Flambé the clouds
And enjoy the strawberry glaze
Of a beautiful sunset.

Late September sunsets
Are when cloud rainbows reflect in water
And autumn dances in
Wearing lilac veils.
