We are back in Beja and have picked up the morning park routine we left off.
Beja’s public park not only has the “tiny house”, playgrounds, ducks, fountains, a carriage ride but it also has a small section with animals such as chickens, roosters, birds, peacocks and…. a rabbit!
Lily loves the song Bunny FooFoo so I guess it was only fitting for her to name the rabbit “Bunny FooFoo”.
I think going to the park to visit Bunny FooFoo is now one of her favorite things to do.
I have posted pictures of Lily during 2 different visits.
The first outfit is from October 13th and the second from October 25th.
As you can see, one is a very summery outfit and the other already fall.
Portugal has been having crazy weather. Never has summer lasted as long as it has this year. It only started getting cool this week.
AND… might I add that it practically went straight into winter (yes I’m complaining, can I not get fall this year!?) since yesterday was cold and raining all day long.
Lily and I arrived here in Portugal exactly 21 days ago.
This is the longest either one of us has been away from Will.
We spent the last week and a half at the beach in the south of Portugal and even though it was wonderful, it was hard not having internet access because that way we weren’t able to chat with Will like we do here in Beja.
Traveling for me is wonderful and extremely hard all at once.
Wonderful because I’m getting to know different places or visiting family but hard because I start missing home.
This time around is even harder because Will is not here with us.
I miss my best friend, my lover, my husband.
Lily misses her pai.
I miss my friends, my home, my plants, my life back in Miami (minus the heat) and I know that Lily does too.
Soon enough we will be back home and then I will be missing my family here in Portugal and wishing we could be with them.
That’s the way it goes. And such is life isn’t it?
Here are the rest of the pictures from our good times spent in Monte Gordo. It was nice being at the beach, I felt closer to home.
Growing up as a young girl in this small Portuguese city called Beja, there were no big super markets.
The city market is where my mom would go to buy everything from meat, fish, cheese to produce.
Times have changed and even though my mom only goes to the super market for some things because she mostly shops in small mom and pop markets in her neighborhood, she no longer shops in the city market.
Lily and I paid them a visit the other day and I was happy to see that they still have my favorite section, their wonderful traditional pottery section.
I bought some souvenirs. 😉
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. We are off to the south of Portugal (Algarve) for 1 week. I will have no internet so see you when we return with lots (and lots) of pictures.
Oh! And I have decided to have a Portuguese inspired GIVEAWAY when we return so make sure you come back to visit us. 🙂
