Surrounded by the Ocean

This is a Museum and Library in my town (Cascais). In the back it has a beautiful park, in front a port.

This valley in side, turns into a lagoon when is high tide.

What a cool place. I like how you took the photo a low tide. I bet it's also incredible at high tide.
What a great place for photography. The photos are beautiful.

The tide! It didn`t even cross my mind... I`m not use to that. Up here it is so steep that we don`t notice sometimes.

Ai, que beleza! É um edifício impressionante. Imagino que dantes estava mesmo cercado de rochas e de água e... Onde estão os crocodilos? Hoje em dia, gatos e pavões!

without the water it's already gorgeous, what more if the lagoon is there by high tide? :)

Que fotos sensacionais.
Perdi meu Blog Momentos Compartilhados e agora estou recomeçando tudo de novo, voltando a seguir meus amigos e pedidno a eles que passem por lá e voltem a ser meus seguidores.
