Last week I started to venture out a bit with BattleKid, starting with a trip to Cacela Velha. There isn’t much in this quaint little village apart from a few restaurants, a church and a police station. However, what it does have is a lovely view of the Ria Formosa. We went early in the morning and were back before it got too hot.
BattleDad had been wondering what was there but wasn’t with us due to a work trip to Paris. He didn’t really miss that much, but I do think we might check out the restaurants down there. It’s only a 10 minute drive from our home but the view was worth it. And I’m sure the food will be as good, as so far we haven’t been disappointed with the food we’ve eaten out here in Portugal.

Last weekend I was in London for a concert with my sisters, we decided to do a few tourist trips to fill in our girlie weekend. First port of call was The View from The Shard. It was a glorious day and you could see for miles. I was quite pleased to see two of my favourite London sites from The Shard, HMS Belfast, which one of my uncles served on, and The Tower of London. I also got to see The Shard in all it’s glory from the London Eye.

We’ve been staying with my parents while we wait for our new place to be finished and ready to move into. This week we’ve noticed a family of birds on the wire fencing. I’ve been told they are red crowned sparrows, please correct me if that’s wrong. The Mum and Dad birds have been flying about catching food and feeding the chicks which have been perched on the fence.

My Dad said I should be out photographing them and reluctantly I took out the big camera and stuck on my 100mm lens, the biggest I currently have with me. I eventually managed to get this shot and had to bow down to my Dad and admit he was right. I’ve zoomed into the picture, hence it looks a bit grainy.

Below is what it looks like without zooming in. I did patiently wait one evening to see if I could get another shot with the chick facing me, but alas a certain 3 year old preschooler put paid to that! Still, not bad hey?
