“Let us conceive, consider and create together the new building of the future that will bring all into one single integrated creation; architecture, painting and sculpture rising to heaven out of the hands of a million craftsmen, the crystal symbol of the new faith of the future.”


I’m pretty sure that Walter Gropius didn’t have this in mind when he said these rather pompous words.

I’m guessing that somewhere between these words and the jumble showing in this photograph [taken just up the road in Lagoa] there might be something worth existing in and around.

    There are some clay jars here that are even bigger. I don’t know how they lift them as Portugeezers tend to be on the small side ………

    It looks like a parcourse for drunken leprechauns.

    woh that is way deep for a man on holiday! … I like the randomness and jumble of that front garden… every home should have a ‘feature’ or 3/4/5….

    I think you should hurry home by the way, the BBC are reporting severe erosion of the cliffs in the East Sussex area……

    wow – jamie oliver would have a field day – filling one of those clay pots with food and burying it in burning embers to cook it – he could then feed the five thousand – well it would take that many to dig the hole!!!
