Was away

I was away for a few days after a very hectic 21/2 weeks of having visitors at home. So here are some pictures of our leisurely stay in Madeira.
Afternoon tea to relax after walking around the whole day.

Lovely gardens to stroll

The long climb up to the mountain

And climb back down into the beautiful botanical gardens

Some quaint little traditional houses

A beautiful magical entrance to a restaurant 

View from the hotel in the night

View from the hotel at dawn

All in all a relaxing time was had.

I have been keeping an eye on my visitor and he watches me from afar off :-)

No doubt wishing I was not there and he could have a try at getting the fishes. Another lotus bloomed and this time the colour is a pale yellow with pale pink outside petals

Sorry I have not been commenting lately on blogs even though I am visiting it. My back problem has not gone yet and it seems to be troubling my wrists which goes into a spasm when I use it too much. I am told it is originating from my back. So I am trying to give it rest. So my doll rests too :). Hopefully it will get better soon and I will be able to use my hands normally. Today I feel much better so I thought I would share my photos.


  1. very nice photos :)

    really hope your back feels better soon, very annoying it is stopping you from doing what you want. :(

    1. Thanks Jen back feels ok but my hands and wrists can't seem to stand too much of strain so I am going slow

  2. That looks a wonderful place. Sorry to hear you are having problems and hopw you feel better soon.

  3. And very lovely they are too! That tea looks enticing, and I would love to do the same walk as you. Madeira has long been on our list of must-visit places; I hope we will be able to do it one day.
