  1. Love this website design Andrew! Might have to follow in your footsteps on this. Good to see you mixing up your posts over the last few weeks…very enjoyable.

  2. Seriously, Andrew. You DON’T want to hear what I think. It’s a jumble in here!

    Otherwise, a nice gallery to begin a fine day in the Ozark Highlands. Those wind turbines on one of your distant hills reminds me of some uber Golgatha.

  3. The Duro is truly a magnificient river with unrivaled scenery. I’m sure that you and Mrs. Ha are so glad that you experienced the boat ride on the river. The scenery is a real treat for the eyes. I really love seeing the vineyards that seem to go on and on growing on the steep hillsides. I have yet to figure out how the vines are farmed but I noticed many roads that wind through the areas.

    Were you able to get any zoom shots of the homes, etc along the way? I read that the Duro runs to the Atlantic and that it also winds through Spain.

    The shots are excellent and I always like a bit of history to accompany the photos.

    Lest I forget- what is the name of the famous landmark that you posted a pic of about 4 or so posts ago? You asked your readers for the name. I of course, had not idea although I tried to find the 5 most famous heritage buildings via google.

    • Yvonne, the building is the Mateus Palace. It is famous because it appears on the label of Mateus Rosรฉ wine. I didn’t do many close up shots of the buildings. I had nothing more than an 85mm lens. The grapes are harvested by hand. It is hard work. We could see people on the terraces checking the progress. Tractors only can go so far.

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
