A Special Night

Three beautiful red roses and a ring I received from hubby 11 days ago..

And a dinner in this restaurant by the riverside

We had this plate of starters but after finishing this serving,i could´nt eat anything, we just ordered dessert followed by a cup of expresso.

This center column of beer mug decor caught my attention

It was a beautiful night,although extremely cold i could´nt resist not take photo of this bridge, Ponte 25 de Abril with the Christ the King ( Cristo Rei)facing the river lighted with blue star.

Lastly, another photo of the beautiful 500 yr. old Tower of Belem,built in the middle of the river as defensive fort.

Lovely,quiet evening spent with hubby on my birthday,29th of November,2007....
