Second on the Second - July 2018 An old post about a visit to Portugal

This is a post from July 2014 when we went to Portugal to visit the family. It was a lovely visit and a great few days. Here is the post:

Hi everyone,

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.
God bless and.... keep scrapping!



  1. I swear I remember this post. It is so familiar to me. I remember you standing on the cliff looking at the ocean, I remember the boat trip, and so much more. I'm thrilled you shared this with us as your second look on the 2nd, because it was a fun look back and shows how long I've "known" you.

  2. Hi Lisca- I loved seeing this post as I have always been interested in visiting Portugal. I have 2 friends who went this year, and I want to think about going sometime sooner rather than later. Thanks for sharing so i could see it. Hugs-Erika

  3. I'm so glad you shared this post with its beautiful photos. I don't think I have seen it before. Looks like a fun time!

  4. What a lovely trip, Lisca. Portugal is a beautiful country. I haven't been but I love seeing photos of it.

    Happy second on the 2nd! Eileen

  5. Your photographs are so clear. I love the huge wooden door of the fortress and enjoyed the boat trip through the caves. Thanks for that.
