The recent rain has brought out the flowers. Supermarket garden.

The little stream that runs towards and then under the town is flowing fairly well.

The problem for me is that flowers and blossoms mean pollen! Hayfever time is here. I must be almost alone in looking forward to the forecast rain for Friday afternoon and the weekend.

Exploding tomato pulp!

In Albufeira on April 16, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged:

Have you ever opened one of those large bottles of tomato pulp which has undergone a fermentation, even though it was in the fridge? I did earlier. As a result my kitchen looked like the aftermath of a particularly gory murder. Exploded when cap taken off.

Took ages to clean up.

Weather is gradually showing signs of improvement, although last Thursday and Sunday were fairly horrible. To cap it we had a mini tornado in the early hours of Friday, which some damage around town – see https://www.cmjornal.pt/sociedade/detalhe/mau-tempo-causa-destruicao-em-albufeira for pictures and news report. Nobody injured though.

This is what we want to see! Vineyards and grapes growing. Situated near Guia, but is not Sir Cliff Richard’s place.

I cannot remember if I have posted this before, in the village centre is an old well, nicely restored. The plaque is dated 1945, few homes would have had running water then.

nearby is this old well, now capped, and an ancient stone trough.

Albufeira beach March 28th

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on March 28, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

Temperature 24ºC, make the most of it as it will become a lot cooler over the next 48 hours! Beyond the pier you can see how much sand was taken away in the recent storms.

Back to work on Porto pictures!

Albufeira beach loses sand

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on March 15, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

The loss of sand in the recent stormy weather is more obvious from this picture I took at Inatel hotel earlier this afternoon. The recent tides had come right up the wall.

The place where the two people are standing is normally covered with sand.
