Tummy Tuesday and Lisbon.

As you can see, I didn't pine away while the Beans were gone.

We were going to show mum's photos of Portugal but it looks like she must have accidently deleted some of them, so we will just show you some of what she has left.

This is April 25th Bridge which is the sister bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see the statue of Christ on the far right.

This is the Discoveries Monument which they passed as they sailed up the River Tagus.

Mum doesn't know what this building is, but she liked the shape of the doorways.

They saw lots of dolphins but they were so fast that mum kept missing them in the photos and got lots of pics of the sea and nothing else. She kept snapping away and got them in the end. They also saw whales. Mum saw water spouts in the distance so kept watching to see if the whales came to the surface. A few minutes later she heard a big crash and the whale had jumped out of the water right beside the ship, but behind her. She yelled for dad and it jumped out of the water again.
Tomorrow we will show photos of the last place they visited which is the pretty medieval town of Brugge in Belgium.

Nice tummy shot! Glad to hear you weren't suffering too much while mum and dad were away.

DailyGs said...

Eric, it is nice to see that you did not pine away while your Mum and Dad vacationed. Without you. For a month. We do not know how you managed it, poor lad.

Mom would be crazy mad at herself if she deleted any of her photos! Ack! Ack! ACK!

The dolphins look happy to see your Mom!

And Lisbon looks like a very intersting place! We never knew the Golden Gate Bridge had a sister!

Those are gorgeous pictures. The shape of those doors on that mystery building are really cool. The dolphins are super too. Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.
Have a great day.

We are enjoying the tunny pic and the holidays snaps. Mom said she can't wait to see the Bruge pics 'cos she and dad went there a few years ago and LOVED it.

Hannah and Lucy said...

That is a very floofilicious tummy Eric - we think your Mum and Dad must have missed that while they were on holiday. Mum visited Bruges when she was in her teens about 500 million years ago - all she can remember was eating chips with mayonnaise!!

Cat of Nine Tales said...

We are loving your travel pictures in with your kitty pictures. I did not know the Golden Gate Bridge had a sister :).
What is a Tuesday without that fluffy orange and white tummy!
