River deep

Taking the Creature for an outing nearby, we thought about water. How about the Tagus? And the Tagus it was. We don't live so far from where it meets the Atlantic and where it is at its widest, just a stone's throw away from Lisbon.
It is the longest river in the Iberian Peninsula. Although it is usually this blue and placid, it is known for its occasional furies when it overflows to flood all the vast plains that stretch as far as the eye can see. The Tagus is also the geographic divide between the rugged North and the flat lands of the South. Ah, the South... How I always long for the South I see on the other shore of the river...
 One of these days, we'll take the Creature south and tell you all about it. For the time being, here we are on the North bank of the mighty Tagus on a fine day of early Spring. A postcard from a place we proudly call... home.
Time to go back to the zillion things that keep a Tesla-wife occupied.
