Albufeira 28th April

In Albufeira on April 28, 2017 by cubsur51 Tagged:

It was a nicer day today than forecast. Shots of Albufeira old town beach taken around 1600hrs. The ‘cliff’ in the beach is caused by rough sea piling up the sand. It flattens out in quieter times.

Nearby, the locals were taking it easy

The fishermen’s harbour, quiet. Most of them go out at night.


Bowls in Albufeira

In Albufeira on April 25, 2017 by cubsur51

A nice sunny day on Saturday, 23ºC, though still a bit windy.

Bowls match Balaia vs Bognor Regis BC. These are one of several touring sides we are hosting through April.


Photo captions on One Drive folders

In Albufeira on April 19, 2017 by cubsur51

It has come to light that Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom, has disabled the automatic captioning display for pictures viewed without logging into to a MS account.

The previous system worked well for years, they changed it recently without asking or telling users.

If you are one of those few people in the universe who do not have a Microsoft or Google account you can see the caption etc by clicking on the tiny (i) icon at the top right of the page.

There is a long topic about this on the Microsoft users forum with, of course, no appropriate response from them!


Sunny days still in Albufeira

On Monday I was at a wedding and then reception party. I blame the bride’s father totally for my condition on Tuesday morning.

So yesterday afternoon I took a walk into town to try to clear my head and body. Failed dismally, had relapse around tea-time but I did manage to take a few pictures of the busy beaches. It was 26ºC, the beaches were busy with local people and visitors on Easter holidays.!Am0w7qp9HCpqgsB9gT6A_Dw8cEDCuw


Albufeira marina 13th April

In Albufeira on April 14, 2017 by cubsur51

A very nice sunny day, 24ºC. Plenty of people about, it being the Easter school holidays here in Portugal and elsewhere. The shiny boats were gleaming in the sun, the restaurants and bars were pretty busy, children were out on the electric karts, scooters and segways and all the boat trips were carrying full loads.

Behind great wall, in what was to have been and what, apparently, might still become the second phase of the marina development, wildflowers grow in abundance.

On the hills above, very desirable residences (and mine!) look down upon the scene.

Click below to see a few pictures.
