Line of people in Alcoutim

There was such joy on this international border as locals, politicians and visitors walked in a line together to celebrate their shared heritage.

As you may have read in my original post they were also looking ahead to a united future. I envy them with their connecting lines. Saturday’s parliamentary lines may have given some of us a moment of hope, however they didn’t resolve the divide. And the shenanigans which have followed have only added to the tension and done nothing to lessen the risks to our democracy and our European connections. Who knows where British lines are going to end up this month.

  1. Ah, I recall this floating bridge from Jo’s post. She was so excited to ‘walk on water’. I haven’t watched the news all weekend, I’m afraid I have had enough of those self-serving politicians (from ALL parties).

    Had to be one train line in my box and here it is today: https://wp.me/pL5Ms-4Lo

    1. Well remembered!

      And I know, don’t think you are the only one staying away from the news. Problem is it is going to be with us a long while as so much more to negotiate whatever the outcome 😦

      3. I haven’t had chance to go lately. The Ladies Day was a Tuesday, which clashed with Striders. They moved it to Wednesday, which will clash with one of my t’ai chi classes. Might have to go alternate weeks. There’s a Club Day Sundays but I can’t get Mick to show a ha’porth of interest πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ They are a really nice crowd and I have so few coordination skills (not counting walking) that I have loved the encouragement.

  2. Hoping for the best with the connections in the future. Following everything from the side line it is hard to keep track of all the discussions and what they may lead to.
    Lovely shot of the connecting bridge.
