Second on the second - A blog post from 2014 revisited - Portugal

Hi everyone,
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.

Here goes: 

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.



  1. Hi Lisca-I really enjoyed your post!!

    1. Oh and the fish looks so delicious! my hubs with love it too

  2. I've always wanted to go to Portugal so I'm really glad you shared this post for a second time. It does look like a beautiful place. :) Hugs-Erika

  3. Lisca, I believe I've seen this post before, or at least the first photo. I adore the picture of you and your husband standing together, and the photo of the everyone relaxing or playing in the pool was phenomenal.

    I'd love to join you in the caves on that boat. That looks like a fabulous experience.

    Wow, I'm not used to seeing fish with the heads on them, but I know they serve them that way in high end restaurants in the states. Looks like you had a feast.

    Thanks for sharing your trip and wonderful experiences in Portugal for a second look on the 2nd.

  4. What a wonderful post you have shared again, love the look of the landscape, and that fish has really given me appetite! Happy 2nd on the 2nd, hugs, Valerie

  5. How lucky am I? I get to take a far away trip from the comfort of my chair. The cave formations are incredible. the food looks fabulous and even though I just finished breakfast, I'm hungry again. Have a lovely day!

  6. A wonderful happy post.Hope you get more wine soon

    Love Chrissie xx
