In Albufeira on November 26, 2018 by cubsur51

The final set from last Friday. Familiar views I think for many of you, these are the Albufeira old town area, again from the other side of the marina.

In this case, click on the thumbnail to see the full sized picture, which will open in a new window.

Busy afternoon at Albufeira marina

In Albufeira on November 26, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

Despite it being winter, it’s still busy at Albufeira marina with a variety of craft making their way in and out. Here’s just a few I pictured over a period of about two hours.

Albufeira Marina area Friday 23rd November

In Albufeira,Algarve on November 25, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged:

These are some pictures I took on Friday afternoon. As I said, it was a rare sunny day. We had a lot of rain on Saturday afternoon and evening, then more today, Sunday.

Above the marina the water tower on Cerro D’Aguia – Eagle Hill in English.

The pastel coloured buildings are the Orada apartments. Above on the hill is Páteo, where I live. You can see the very expensive new build apartments under construction top left. A 1 bedroom place is yours if you have €195,000 to spare.P1010104

The breakwater at the entrance to the marina. In the background is the town beach on the left, then Inatel beach and the eastern extension of them.

Some fishermen still go out every night. I often count 12 – 15 small boats out on the water when I look out of my window. P1010164

At last – a day with no rain in Albufeira!

In Albufeira,Algarve on November 23, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

Today was a much better day. I was able at last to take a walk and take some pictures. I went to the hill up behind the marina, where it’s a view down into the marina and old town areas. Here are three samples, some pictures over the weekend.

This is a view of the one time ‘Fishermen’s Beach’ from the hill across the other side of the bay.

And this is a close up of people sitting in the sun outside the beach restaurant ‘O Farol’ (The Lighthouse) – it was only about 17ºC but pleasant enough as there was little wind.

The light was pretty good. This is Quarteira, about 9 miles or 14km across the sea from where I was standing.

The sky wasn’t really as dark as that!
