October Squares | Day Twenty-Six

This month Becky (the Queen of Squares) has challenged us to find lines. In Squares naturally. That is the only proper ‘rule’. I have been dipping into the archives for this one, as well as finding local lines.


October Squares | Day 26

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Do you know I have never been to Cascais!! Just loving the calçada portuguesa, maybe the best pavement lines ever 🙂

    1. You haven’t? It is lovely. I could live there. Nice park, some good restaurants and lovely walks along the coast, plus easy train ride to Lisbon and bus ride to Sintra. I suspect it might be expensive though because of that.

      1. our French Australian neighbours in Portugal lived there for a while, and loved it but decided winters in the south were a better option!

      1. There are so many places on my list……maybe we’ll visit in December if there’s a GE. Anything to avoid the politics!

  2. I was wondering where that was, and discarding Alicante, which it slightly resembles. Of course, why would it be in Spain? Portugal is your default!

    1. I haven’t really spent much time in Spain Margaret. Only a brief visit to Barcelona, a week in Algerciras a long time ago and a week in Madrid even longer ago! On the other hand I haven’t spent much time in Portugal either! But I like what I saw. 🙂

    1. It is the greyness that gets me down. I don’t mind cold with sun and blue skies, you can wrap up for that, but grey and wet are just horrible.

  3. The construction of those lines had to have been a nightmare to make it flow so effortlessly! Craftsmanship like that just isn’t done here – too expensive to make – but it’s so beautiful!

    1. Portugal is famous for these beautiful pavements, they are a bit of a nightmare int he rain though! Not to mention playing tricks with your vision 🙂

      1. I’ll get to experience that for myself in a couple of weeks. We will be heading to Lisbon and then Faro … my first time in Portugal 🙂
