Additional pictures now successully uploaded.
After several days of wet and windy weather, culminating in a squally storm on Sunday the like of which we haven’t had here in a very long time, the sun was out today. I took the opportunity for a couple of walks, not the least because new owners are now above me in the apartment block, not just one but two apartments. They are busy smashing down walls, stripping old tiles, ripping out old kitchens and generally making on hell of a racket. Can’t hear meself think at times. Anyway they have stopped now.
All these pictures were taken today, 28th March 2017
We will start with some nice colours.
The recent rain means there is a lot of water in the river that from here flows under the town and out to sea.
Everywhere there are insects buzzing around the wild flowers, doing what ever it is they do.
Not far from where these pictures were taken, a large area of what was to have been yet another holiday resort is gradually returning to nature. Not a brick was ever laid. For anyone who knows the areas, this is opposite the Eden Resort, about 1km out of town.
Nearby is the long established Clube Albufeira complex.
It’s on the left of this picture, which also shows the N395 road north towards Ferreiras.
And this is the Eden resort from a bit of a distance
Some views of the wooded hills near Páteo, not far from where I live.
And looking north past the retail park are the hills around Salir and Alte.
