  1. STUNNING pictures, Sonia....I love the water and the clouds---almost as if the clouds were a reflection---which I know they weren't...But the composition of these pictures and the Great Great Beauty of this body of water....WOW!
    I love that you can see that rippling bottom in the last picture.....Sonia, my dear, you live in such a very beautiful area....And you and Carlos take such fabulous pictures showing the great beauty that surrounds you.

    Thank you so much, my dear, for your lovely words about my pictures and my garden...! Aren't we lucky people, Sonia? To be surrounded by so much great beauty and so many stunning things of nature...?

  8. I thought your farniente was ongoing, but you still post! ... of course with the help of Fernando!

    Lucky you to have beaches like this close to where you live. Any bathing restrictions?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow...I want to go there!
    About the trees you've posted, have you ever seen some "ipe" and "maçaranduba" trees? These woods are very up to date in France to make terraces.

  10. Espantosa a refexão do céu sobre a água na primeira foto; e gosto dos detalhes e da limpidez da água nas restantes.
    Imagino que seja um sítio gloriosamente tranquilo!

    ReplyDelete

  26. Hoje já visitei o blog da Enseada Azul e agora o seu, pois fazia algum tempo que eu não dava um passeio pelos blogs amigos.

    É realmente um passeio e um colirio para os olhos.

    Na postagem sobre Holambra as plantações de frutiferas é deliciosamente irresistivel.

  50. "Limpid".
    Isn't that a wonderful word?
    Although it doesn't sound like what it describes, does it?
    Sounds lazy and sleepy.
    Maybe I'm thinking of a limpet?!
    That last photo is calling me!
    "come for a swim, come for a swim"

  54. I could just take off and walk forever in that sand.. thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  55. The photos are serene and show calm, placid water that is balm to the soul. I especially like the rippled sand under the water of the last snap.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love how clean the water looks. Hooray.
    The clouds are beautiful. It's also nice to see an empty beach, uncluttered with schtuff or trash!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I would like to dip my toes in that calm pleasant water, perhaps walk along the shore for a while, just enjoying the sunshine and the blue sky. Care to join me?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Sonia, have you seen these?
    As soon as I saw them, I thought of you.

    ReplyDelete
  61. And a very LOVELY Sunday to you too, dear Sonia...! It was in the 90's here today.....Not sure what tomorrow will bring (lol)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Meraviglioso!
    I feel as if I can walk through the shallow water, looking at my toes on the sand ripples. Heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I thought I had written a comment, but then ... I must have been carried away by the dreamy images, flown high up in the sky .... ;-)

    "Volare, oh oh
    Cantare, oh oh oh oh
    Let's fly way up to the clouds
    Away from the maddening crowds
    We can sing in the glow of a star that I know of
    Where lovers enjoy peace of mind
    Let us leave the confusion and all disillusion behind
    Just like bird of a feather, a rainbow together we'll find
    "

    You remember Domenico Modugno?
