A very nice sunny and warm day today, so I climbed the hill above Albufeira’s old town and took a few pictures.

Recovered from an apartment in our block during rebuilding. Made of wood.

Can anyone put a date on them? Just curious.

This picture was taken this morning by someone I know about 5km inland from Vilamoura.

And this one by me in Albufeira a little after 5pm. It was fairly cold though, 14ºC and it’s expected to be as low as 4ºC here tonight, colder inland.

The grass is green – but the flytipping!

Walked over to the cinema, which is about 3 miles / 5km. The countryside is fairly green, the almond trees are flowering but it’s spoiled in places. Here, many people think it is acceptable to dump building rubble and old televisions by the roadside.

A couple of samples, the rest at https://1drv.ms/f/s!Am0w7qp9HCpqg6xngk8fFELGbevmag
This the view looking north-east towards the hills. The noticeable high point is the Rocha da Pena, 494 metres above sea level.

Viruses have at last gone!

That was a nasty one, nearly three weeks of it! I can understand now why people die of the ‘flu. if not healthy to begin with.

Anyway, the sun is out and the sky is blue which cheers everyone up.

Here’s a couple of pictures I took on my way to the supermarket earlier. First time I have been there for 10 days.

This the play and exercise area at the entrance to the tunnel that takes the footpath under the main road and into town.

I am out for a walk this afternoon. My next door neighbour is rebuilding his bathroom, so I need to escape the drilling and hammering for a couple of hours. More pictures later of the sunny countryside.
