Look at this....

I haven't posted since last Thursday's Fence day!  hahha.... well, at least "Good Fences" gives me a reason to remember what day it is.  That, and the fact that it is also garbage day today, so I did have to remember to wheel the bins out.

This may be a bit of a cheat...but, I'm going to show you some shots of fences I took while on holiday in Portugal.  This day we were in a town called Constancia .. very pretty.  We did a lot of walking up and down hills.... some of it pretty steep.   Loved the doors, windows and fences .. took lots of pics of them .. and haven't really had anybody to share them with until now.

Now, I have all of you.... and I'm thrilled to show other fence enthusiasts what I love to shoot while on holiday.

The look of them.  The view through them.  Even what is behind them.

Everybody seemed to have dogs.  And, not many were friendly.  They barked loudly and ran straight at the fences.  I was glad the fences were high and strong...
















I remember this guy was more curious than mean...but, still...he did bark if we got too close... and I wasn't about to put my hand through there to pet him... darn it... cuz that fluffy head just begs for petting doesn't it?
















Kind of reminds me of some of my bears.... with that cute big shnozz...


Check out all sorts of interesting fences here and hey!  why not add one of your own?

Nice pictures of and old gate, I like it...
In my work as a postwoman I've seen a dog, who was very angry and threw himself every day yapping against the gate .. One day the door was not locked and it worked on. Dog suddenly stood on the street ... and was instantly quiet. No more noise and no bite. He slipped away ...

Neat old steel gate. Your comment to my Good Fence made me smile.

Lois said...

Very pretty! The dog is cute too.

Ida said...

That is a pretty neat gate and I'm in agreement that I'd be thankful for a high sturdy fence too if a big dog was behind it and didn't seem friendly.

Wonderful to have photos from your trip to Portugal. I don't think the memes ever have to be current necessarily. Yours are just beautiful. What a great trip !
