So exhausted after so much fun at the beach! Exaustas depois de muita diversão na praia!

Happy 2014 for all of you! Feliz 2014 para todos vocês!
These photos were taken by Carlos, Sofia and Sonia A. Mascaro.


  1. My dear Sonia,
    Sofia is lovely, and so obviously loved very dearly. I don't know if you or Carlos is responsible for some very artistic photos among this collection!
    I adore Sofia's dogs they are just adorable.
    Ah to have her home for Christmas is such a joy - but doesn't the time go too quickly my friend.

  2. Your daughter is so lovely! How wonderful that she was able to be home for the holidays!

  3. beautiful skies, beautiful daughter and beautiful garden - you are in heaven.

  4. What fun - it's always nice to see family. My daughter was in town a couple of weeks ago and it was great to see her.

  5. What fun photos! Looks like you had a wonderful time together.

  6. Oh Sonia....How wonderful to have Sofia there and her two BEAUTIFUL delightful dogs, too! They are so very Handsome and Elegant! I LOVE the picture of them sleeping together---So Very Very Dear! It looks like this was a very special Holiday for you all, my dear. I am so happy for you!

  7. Sofia looks like the happiest girl in the world.

  8. Oh, so beautiful! Your daughter and the setting!

  9. Lovely pics of your charming and beautiful daughter.Looks like you all had great fun and a wonderful reunion ! Love the nice pool where Sofia is cooling off !

  11. she is beautiful, and i love her dogs!

  12. Happy New Year to you too, Sonia! How wonderful that Sofia, Lisa and Brahma were able to spend the holidays with you! I hope she lives close enough to you that she is able to pay many visits throughout the year. (Frankly, if my parents lived in such a beautiful place, I would never have left home!) :-) Wonderful photos - you are all sure to enjoy a wonderful 2014 after ringing it in with such joy!

  13. Sonia, What great photos of your lovely daughter. You live in a paradise! I love the beach shots.

  14. What joy!
    So super to see your lovely daughter and her dogs!
    It gives us such pleasure to see the family.
    What fun to walk on the beach and go swimming in the winter.
    Elizabeth and Buster.

  15. Brahma's face looks exactly like Soldier's. Sofia is beautiful and so are your surroundings. I haven't been on an escalator since I took that picture in 2005 in Stockholm.

  17. Wonderful, wonderful photos!
    So happy and carefree.
    Brings a smile to my face.

  18. It's lovely to have your daughter home for Christmas and New Year celebrations, very important for families to be together. And it looks like the weather was perfect for swimming and dog walking in the beach. No swimming on the beach here.... the water is far too cold!

  19. Nice photos full of happiness and joy. This breed of dogs I love.

  20. This was fun to see, I can tell that your lovely daughter brings an abundance of joy with her - it radiates from her! And what sweet dogs she has. I love their smiling faces. It's funny though...I never before thought of "swimming" and "shorts" and "drinks by the water" in the same context with "Christmas and New Year." It's so funny how we come to associate holidays with specific pictures in our head. And my Christmas pictures are of snow and cold and being dressed up like an Eskimo!

  21. i'm so late...but happy new year and all best for 2014. sonia is beautiful and so are her dogs. kisses from paradis

  22. It's great to have the children come home for the holidays or just anytime! That's great she was able to come see you! :-)

    I love your dog photos!

  23. Damn it! looks like I missed the party. Your daughter and the dogs. Memories. Oh, and I love that dress she's wearing in the last couple of photos. Cute!

  24. Family, countryside, flowers . . . just right for the holidays. If Sofia lives in the city, so much the better to return here on the lake side.

  25. Sonia,
    loved you pictures of your daughter. What a wonderful occasion to see her and share some time together. I wish I could... My daughter and her family live in Sweden. They are in my thoughts every step of my way.

  26. me resulta tan extraño ver la navidad en la playa, con sol y calor, tu hija Sofia guapísima, al igual que sus perros. Felicidades por las fotos me encanta tu blog
