    Greetings SlingshotCommunity friends!!
    Today's hike was amazing. The weather was formidable for this time of the year.
    Usually, when it's not windy, I bring smaller targets for my enjoyment and training
    Today was lighter popping time!! Slingshot of choice was my beautiful gift from 2015, toolmanttf99 walnut "Natracut"
    What an awesome frame!!!
    Hope you folks like this very simple video.
    Cheers ...Q

    Thank you so much for your comment, my friend!!!
    Sintra is very beautiful!! Although I lived here all my life, I never seem to get tired of it!
    Anytime you want to drop by, you're welcome!!:rolleyes:
    My point of anchor is a bit past my right ear. Like a semi-butterfly (not so long as yours, I've seem to adapted myself to a 26cm band length)
    Best regards ...Q
    Thank you so much, my friend!!
    Indeed a very magical place! The forest has partially covered some 18th century buildings, which gives it a special look.
    Best regards ...Q

    Portugal is a beautiful country, I was there in 2019 and was hoping to visit again but, well plans got cancelled for obvious reasons. A friend of mine has a villa in Portugal and was planning a cycling weekend.

    If I may be so bold to ask, sir, in what part of Portugal did you stayed in??

    I was in the Algarve, not sure what town we stayed near, when we went on holiday in 2019 and my friends villa is near Faro. The sea food was nice, ate lots of squid.

    Well, well, well!!!!
    Look who's here!!!! How are things with you, dear friend??
    SO GLAD to hear about you!! :tu::tu::tu::tu::D:D
    How've you been during these turmoiled recent times?
    This has been a CRAZY year (2020/21). Hope you and yours are fine, in the best possible way!
    THANKS for the feedback too, my friend!! This is a newly discovered spot on my favourite hiking area. It has a very peculiar piece of architecture, an 18th century aqueduct, which is already semi-buried. Very beautiful and calm!!
    We have to keep up our conversation again, my friend!! You know where to reach me ;)
    Best regards, with friendship from Portugal!!
