This february , I would say, is the worst I have known for many years. It's not so much the rain, although bad. Its the cold. Its been bitterly cold. Our temperatures going down to 3º --
Once they see me at my kitchen window, off they fly.
So as the cycle of winter is still with us. Our weather man tells us , that this weather is here to stay for another week.
In The North of Portugal. In the seaside town of Nazare and along that coastline.
waves of over 100ft hit the promanade entering the road . and flooding the streets.
In Porto.. High waves entered the river front and swept cars up like a thimble and carried them down the road.
You might have seen on the tv. a Brazilian riding the biggest largest wave in recorded history. In Nazare. A very very dangerous coast during winter. The American surfer- Mac Namara. comes every year to ride the big waves.
|I am not sure what bird this is. It looked like a kite- but could have been a hawk. It was hovering for sometime over the area.. it must have seen something on the ground. It was there with two others for a while.|
Thinking of all my dear blogging friends, who are being affected by the floods in England, blizzards in America, monsoon's in india- such bad bad weather this year all over. Climate change is upon us.
I have only been out once this week. Its just so bad.
Wishing you all a relaxed and cosy weekend wherever you are.
