Along the river

Having walked down from the bridge, the views here were fantastic. All of the different colours of the houses & the brightness of the roof tops were excellent. This was quite a walk, so much to see & so many little places to visit once you leave the waters edge. As always I get carried away taking pictures so was instructed to stop & take in the surroundings using the eyes for a change.

The boats in the foreground are called Rabelos. These are flat bottomed boats which used to carry the wine & port to the cellars across the river in Vila Nova de Gaia. Unfortunately not used so much now as the wine is transported by tankers but still, they are a great tourist attraction.
