Late Celebration of My Husband's Birthday.

My husband's birthday was last Thursday, but we've been too busy to post anything. Here is a photo of where we had our birthday dinner Thursday (O Grelo), a wonderful restaurant in Monforte de Lemos that cooked some of the best fish we've ever tasted.


The next day we had lunch with a friend, and she brought us a beautiful white rose, which has been unfolding by degrees each day in our galleria.

Lots more has been going on before and after, visits with friends and sightseeing, but frankly, we've been too busy for me to download anything until this morning. And all my posting about other pictures will have to wait because we are on the go again, visiting friend today and going to Braga, Portugal tomorrow (for 5 days). I hope to bring back lots of pictures and do lots of posting on return. Till then, best wishes for a good week and wonderful week-end.

Looks like a good restaurant for an intimate birthday celebration.

Happy Birthday to your dear husband. I suggest celebrating the whole month, because, why not?

Hi, Richard. It really is, but, surprisingly, it's actually a very large restaurant with an inviting, small entrance and the few tables outside, but then you go upstairs to a large dining room and downstairs to another large dining area. So it can accommodate lots of diners. Naturally, we preferred the more intimate area.

Oh, I love that idea, Mirka. Why not indeed. I'm up for it. Have a great day. Thanks for coming by.

Thanks, Tonja. It was a nice place to celebrate. Quiet & peaceful and very scenic. Not to mention the good food and wine! :-)

Happy belated birthday to your husband, Elizabeth! Although I'm late, like you, I've been very busy and unable to get by sooner. However, I really enjoyed the photo of you and your husband, and of course, that unfolding rose. Have fun as you travel, dear.

Thanks for stopping by and for the good wishes, B&E. Glad you enjoyed the photos. I'll be coming by your own blog in a couple days. (We're traveling right now.) Have a good week-end.

What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday! Hope you enjoy Braga.

Thanks, Kate. We just got back from Braga Sunday, and the trip was absolutely wonderful. I've started posting about it, starting with the very last evening, because a friend turned that evening into something quite special. Hope you have had a good week.
