Here in Albufeira the ex-pats and holidaymakers will be gathering this evening to bite their fingermails in the slightly forlorn hope that England will beat Uruguay and thus not be eliminated from the World Cup. At least we lasted longer than Spain!
I shall take my camera and if circumstances permit I shall post some pictures of us in our natural habitat. if I don’t, it probably means we lost and we are all down in the depths of despair – or worse.
Pleasant weather today, 26C or 79F. A bicycle ride around the Galé and São Rafael area took me down to the Praia dos Arrifes, a nice little beach down the bottom of a hill a couple of miles west of Albufeira.
Took a little trip down there, a month or so since I last went. The rehabilitation work seems to have been left unfinished. All the workmen and plant have left site, leaving loads of pipes and stuff laying around, several large unfilled holes and trenches and also a portable toilet. The water was a horrible green colour but the birds didn’t mind. I also saw a turtle, so it seems they are back. A sample picture below, rest here.
Can you do this? I can’t but this was last night in a bar. Shows how silly we can be at times. This is not faked , there were numerous witnesses!
Picture taken of the Inatel beach (east of the pier) yesterday at about 6pm.
Just a picture to show how nice it was yesterday.
Another hot sunny day, 28C (82.5F) so out with the camera. There are not a huge number of tourists about but people were enjoying an unseasonably hot day on the beach. Some were enjoying the sun far too much, i saw some sad sights later in the day and on thr Saturday.
