Impressions of the Costa Verde

Impressions of the Costa Verde

Impressions of Costa Verde….

Lush green valleys…
…Red tiled houses
Pure clean air…
…Pine and dust
Crushed mint underfoot…
…Good company

 

Laughter…
…Making new friends
Tired legs…
…Fresh light wine
Strong shots of coffee…
…Cool sand between toes

 

Sound of surf…
…Duckboards over dunes
Sunsets – moon & Venus…
…Fertile, sprouting crops, bright flowers
Vines, untidy, not regimented…
…Light bachalao fritters

 

Fresh fish, today’s catch…
…Stocky immaculate churches
Crosses on plinths…
…Levadas
Cobbled pathways…
…Bread rolls

 

Cabbage top soup…
…Juicy melons
Sea mist…
…Pale blue skies
Wild horses…
…Big smiles
Clear mountain streams…
