Just a few pictures taken while walking from my place to Algarve Shopping for the cinema. I went to see the new Macbeth film. Don’t watch this film if if depressed or sad or you will be feeling positively suicidal when it ends.

Taken yesterday. Notice how much sand has gone from the far side of the pier. Last summer there were sunbeds etc there. It’s OK further down, beyond Inatel.

Good job I walked when I did, it’s been battering down with rain since about 4 o’clock!

Portuguese League Second Division. Portimonense are third and with a really good chance of promotion to the top league where they would play the likes of Benfica, Sporting and FCPorto. They won 3-1 to stay in the chase.

The Algarve League is at the fourth tier of football in Portugal. Decidedly semi-professional at best, there is a First Division of sixteen teams and second Division of just nine teams. There is no organised football below this league, participation in football for fun just doesn’t seem to be on a wish list for anyone around here!

Last Saturday a local derby took place at Guia with Imortal Albufeira being the visitors. A crowd of about 100 watched a closely fought match on a sunny but rather windy afternoon. Imortal won 1-0 with a goal in time added at the end.
