The weather is still pretty poor but at least we have now had around 36 hours with no rain. I had to go into town yesterday, here is a montage of some pictures.

A brief interlude from rain

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on March 8, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

All too brief! We had a few hours on Wednesday morning with no rain. The beach was rather windswept, only a few people were braving the weather. In the afternoon and evening we had a long period, hours, of heavy rain.

A few more here.

Rainy days here in Albufeira

After two or three weeks of fairly good weather, it’s back to February here with grey skies, heavy rain showers and strong winds. Another week or so of this weather is likely.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 28th, sees the start of the annual Women’s International Football (soccer to US readers) Tournament held here in the Algarve. The ladies might not appreciate the rain, wind and mud but we shall have the opportunity to see some of the world’s best women’s teams including Canada, China, Japan and Sweden. And it’s all free.

First game for me is here in Albufeira tomorrow afternoon, when South Korea take on Russia. I shall try to get s few pictures.

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.

Weather contrasts!

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.
