Hens on Slope.

After we have celebrated my husband's eighty second birthday with the family tomorrow, hubby and I will be leaving at 5am on Sunday morning for the Algarve, where we have a place by the sea.The change of scenery and sea air is so beneficial, and we enjoy walking along the shore, and on the cliff tops with our dog Mel. I'm really looking forward to photographing some seascapes, and taking photos of the wildlife down there, and perhaps I will be lucky enough to see a Bee-eater, a bird I have seen there before, but never had the chance to photograph. We are staying until the end of the month, so what with the birthday lunch and last minute packing there won't be much time for visiting. I will visit you all however as soon as possible. Goodbye for now.:)




Leaving you with this country view, hoping to share some seabirds on our return, until then, take care:)

Looking forward to your seabird photos, but the free-ranging chickens remind my of my childhood when my grandfather let his chickens run in our shared back yard. I got to know most of the hens by name. Had a grand time on a working ranch during our vacation the past two weeks. Thanks so much for your kind words and congrats on our 56th Wedding Anniversary. I am getting close to your husband's age, as I turn 81 next month. As my Dad used to say, "Oh to be 70 again!" He lived to be 96 and stayed sharp until his death at 96.

First still congratulations on the anniversary of your husband :-)
I hope you guys have put together a lovely time. I look forward to your photos by faces the sea and I hope you can find a bee-eater. That's a beautiful bird.
A hug
