Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday


Only a little bit of red for this week's Ruby Tuesday, as expressly wished by our hostess Mary T. This is Saint Martha's Lighthouse in Cascais, Portugal (near Lisbon), whose first historical references date back to 1693. We had drinks right across from it at a tiny, beautiful and inviting place, and we could watch it as the sun went down behind a hill. It was very romantic as well!!

This is not my last Ruby Tuesday! however, business meetings ( which, as contradictory as it may sound, I am not attending!) will keep me away from home for a few days and there is some fun traveling planned afterwards, so that I will be gone for about one week.

The laptop is coming along but it is booked with business meetings too! I could schedule posts for those days but I don't feel comfortable when I cannot visit or return visits , therefore I will quietly leave today and resume blogging activities when I get back (I should be coherent and not publish a Ruby Tuesday post, but I never said I was perfect and I wanted to leave this shot posted, which happens to have just the perfect bit of red!!) Everything will be carefully recorded by my (hopefully well repaired) loyal camera. Have a wonderful time, wherever you are, whatever you are doing.

  2. You are going away ? again ?? lol ! Business meetings are usually boring for the wives but when the place is nice it can be great ! Where are you going or is it a secret ? The lighthouse is really beautiful, the whole landscape I would say.
    Have a nice flight or trip !
