I travelled through Faro on the way to a football match yesterday. Sun was shining although it was windy. Here is the marina. In the background the old city walls.

This one is looking the other way, across the tidal marshes towards the airport.

Faro’s railway station is close to the marina. An Intercity train from Lisbon enters the station

It was quite windy, air temperature around 20ºC. Didn’t deter some people from having a paddle! The sun beds were not doing much business however.


Unusual plant seen

Spotted this the other day not far from home.

The plant is apparently one of these –

It flowers only once , towards the end of its thirty year lifespan, which is maybe why we don’t see it very often in this form.

Galé is a popular beach about 3 miles / 5.5km west of Albufeira itself. In the warm and sunny weather that is still with us, plenty of people were out enjoying the sand.

And in the distance at the far end of the beach stands the small town of Armação de Pêra.
