This is a blogpost from July 2014. (I'm posting this as a 2nd of the 2nd.) We haven't been to Portugal this year (I like to go there to buy wine) so I'll have to make do with the sweet memories.
I haven’t blogged for a while because I've been away from my computer. It’s holiday time in the northern hemisphere and my husband and I drove to the Algarve in Portugal. A beautiful part of the world!
We went to the westernmost cape and looked over the ocean (nothing between here and America).
There’s a sort of fortress as in olden days this point was of strategic value.
We stayed in this beautiful villa with DS and DD-in-Law plus children.
When the children had gone to bed we could relax and put our feet up with some supper.
One of the highlights was a boat trip along the coast to see the caves.
Gorgeous beyond words.
This ice cream parlour had been there for donkey’s years and there was a black and white photo of the proprietors on the wall in the shop. Interesting....
The ice cream was lovely but this part of Portugal is renowned for its fish.
We went to a brilliant fish restaurant and had a fantastic meal.
Thank you for your interest in what’s going on in my life.
