Hot and sunny day for late May, 26ºc but started to get a little cloudy around 430pm, which is when these pictures were taken on the main beach in town.

Galé beach, Albufeira

Somer of you will know this area, which is about 3 miles to the west of Albufeira old town. I was going around the area, collecting information to update my area map (which shall be done over the weekend) and took some time out by the beach at Galé.

It was a sunny day, but quite windy. It was fairly busy for late May, temperature was around 24ºC when these pictures were taken at lunchtime.


Back home, windy and cold in England

Back home after a few days in southern England, where it was very cold (never above 11ºC) and very windy AND my return flight was delayed 2hrs and 30 minutes.

Back here in Albufeira it is also very windy, but a lot warmer. A thunderstorm passed over this morning.


May colours

If you are a wild flower person, you would be happy here! I am sure the local bees are also, plenty of humming and buzzing to be heard. I am not a flower person, they give me hay fever, which is noticeable today. But the colours are nice, so I took these while out for a stroll earlier.


Albufeira 28th April

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.

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

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!
