Albufeira Beach 26th April 2018

Just to keep things ticking over. It was reasonably sunny today, although rather windy. These shots of the old town beach in Albufeira were taken a little after 1130am.

This is the new ‘welcome building’ under construction at the pinnacle end of the beach. It will be a bar, restaurant, toilet and shower facility to replace a smaller building destroyed in a storm a few years ago. Work has been delayed by the recent bad weather.

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.
