F is for... Forest

This forest is the first picture I'm sharing from our recent trip to the Alentejo region of Portugal. And when I took this one I hoped it would be my F.

This picture was taken on part of the

Rota Vicentina

in the section between Zambujeira do Mar (where we were staying) and Almograve. As it's a coastal walk, it was sandy underfoot and the forest offered some welcome shade. We'd driven to the Cape 

Sardão lighthouse and picked up the route there heading towards Almograve, walking for a few hours before turning round and heading back.  

It's a beautiful part of the world and I'll be sharing more of our trip soon, just as soon as I sort through the rest of the photos!

I'm linking this post to Charly's Alphabet Photo Project over on 


 - who has a rather fabulous flamingo this week - so pop over there and see 

what other people have chosen for their F.
