VIEWS TO THE BRIDGE - JURUMIRIM'S DAM


Like Peter and Fénix did (see their comments) I also went to Google Earth to view Jurumirim's dam, my house in Enseada Azul, the city of Avaré and the city of São Paulo.



 
From the top of my house’s water reservoir you can see the Bridge "Carvalho Pinto" that leads to Avaré. This bridge was built to span Jurumirim's Dam.

  1. Sonia, com tantas indicações assim, qualquer dia desses aparecemos aí.
    Já sabemos até o caminho que liga à Avaré.
    Mas não me canso de elogiar seu canto, é mesmo muito lindo.
    Isso é o paraíso.
    Querida tenha um lindo final de semana ao lado dos seus.
    Um beijo.
    Ah! obrigada pelo carinho, já me sinto bem melhor. Coloquei até um postzinho hoje com umas fotos de uma bela caminhada que fizemos.

  2. Such a lovely view, from your house's reservoir.

    I'm not familiar with a house reservoir, but I can probably do a Web Search on the term.

  4. Sonia,

    I am continually amazed at the views from your lovely home! I need to ask - do you have a boat?

    I just love seeing your view - a different country. I've never been out of the United States but, hopefully, before I leave this earth, I plan to leave the country and experience a different culture.

    By the way, the house in my photos is the neighbor's house. Yes, we have neighbors very close. Even though we are close, we have a lot of privacy and I rarely see them.

    Thanks for your view!

    Hope you havr a beautiful and lovely weekend my dear...!

  7. Sônia, a vista de Jurumirim é linda! de todos os ângulos. Não conheço a represa. Em minha andanças pelo interior de São Paulo sempre passei por Avaré, mas nunca cheguei até aí. Dia desses a gente aparece para um café, tá? ("Inxerido", eu?)
    Bom final de semana
    Beijo, menina

  8. Awesome views and wonderful photos.
    Landscapes are so wide and calm, so different compared our hills and lakes and coniferous forests in this part of Finland.
    Have a nice weekend!

  9. You have such wonderful views from your house Sonia. That's a very large dam. I'm completely enchanted with that great expanse of blue water!
    I enjoyed the pictures taken during your daily walks last time I visited and thought I'd left a comment on that one, but didn't find it. Like Val, I feel I've walked with you and visited. How lovely that would be, sitting on the bench, chatting, and watching flora eat grass :)
    I hope you had a lovely few days away visiting family and friends.

  10. Visita guiada! Fazia tempo que não andava por essas bandas. Quanto progresso.

    Bjs e bom fim de semana!

  11. Peter's comment made me curious so I went to see GE's view of the dam. Oh, yes, impressive is the right word for it. And I love the second photo, that view is delightful!

    Have a lovely Sunday.

  12. Good that you added the GE views. I always like to place things on the map. I also like to follow the "map" when I'm flying to for me yet unknown places, trying to get a window seat.
    ... and again thanks for your regular visits to my blog!

  13. How FABULOUS Sonia...I LOVE that we can see where you are in a greater Conrxt...! Amazing!!
    I have to try doing that with my place, too!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sonia, doesn't that first map look like a collage - you know a picture made up of lots of bits of little paper!
    I really liked this post - so typical of you - you always do something unusual and interesting.
    How may kilometres are you from Sao Paulo?
    Did you here on the news there is a new google feature which lets you go into space and fly among the stars and planets?

  15. Very nice with all the photos and the google earth as well!

  16. Wonderful photos of your beautiful area Sonia. Those bridges are fascinating out over the water like that! That water is so blue and pretty. You sure live in a pretty place!!!

    Hope you had a nice break!!!

    Hugs,
    Rachel

  20. Lindo Sonia! Eu uso google maps a lot. Gosto de ver onde morei, onde irei se é um lugar desconhecido, ou apenas ver onde alguns amigos moram. Bjs!

  22. Sonia e agora com direito à localização geográfica e tudo.
    Perfeito.

  23. Your photo are always interesting and beautiful. These are really SPECIAL because you exactly let us understand where everything is. It's important in fact in my point of you, to be able to set places in a country. Thank you very much !

    ReplyDelete
  24. Kool....its amazing to see the place we live from top angle, doesn't it?...thanks Sonia for sharing such good shots of your house and beautiful surrounding. this is tempting me to check Google earth asap..:))

  25. Sonia,
    a cada post seu, novas maravilhas do seu para�so. Avar� pr� mim era, at� ent�o, nome de bala.
    Mas agora, no GE deu para situar-me melhor.
    Beijos!

  26. Awesome idea! I'm such a visual person and love seeing from a distance where I live what a great idea for you to do the same!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. How did you get the google pics on your site? I think I might do the same thing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Looking at things from above is fun, isn't it? It's amazing how much detail we can see sometimes. In a couple of years we'll probably be able to zoom into each other's houses and say hello! :)

    Um forte abraço.

  31. Oh my goodness, this is so amazing. I love the first photo/map.

    Lucky you. You live right but the water.

  32. Sônia:

    Cheguei ao seu blog por indicação da Cris, do From our home to yours, porque eu publiquei um post sobre um feriado e fotos da represa de Jurumirim. Eu fico em Arandú, conhece?
    Suas fotos são lindas, dá para matar a saudade da represa e minha vontade de estar sempre por lá...

    Bjs,

    Cris
