Portugal...

These pictures were taken six years ago (Canon EOS 50E Film camera)in my homeland, the place in Portugal where the waves are overwhelming. This is the coast of Guincho. In the background is the most western point of Europe, Cabo da Roca.
"...Where the Land ends, and the Sea begins..."
My beloved Atlantic Ocean...

Guincho-Cascais This is my beloved wife and my son.:) The twins weren't born yet.

Guincho This is the Land that I miss so much...

What a beautiful coastline! I understand that you miss the spectacular scenery. The waves are great, I can feel the smell of the sea all the way over here! You have a wonderful family.

It is indeed a beautiful place. I imagine that you have to be careful when you are near the water, and not be swept away by the wave. Have you seen the following Youtube video?

Hello Robert! I saw these shots during the weekend, but I have been busy! :) And the photos reminded me of the time I was in Portugal. I had a holiday on Praia da Rocha, close to the sea. Wonderful place. Had a lot of pictures, but unfortunately I lost them all in a fire some years ago. I will go back some time! :)

These pictures are beautiful and they stir my heart. I know the feeling. I have been away from California and my beloved Pacific Ocean for 3 years.

I love the spraying waves and the rocky cliffs.

I know it is not the same, but England has an Atlantic coast, too!
