At last – a day with no rain in Albufeira!

In Albufeira, Algarve on November 23, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

Today was a much better day. I was able at last to take a walk and take some pictures. I went to the hill up behind the marina, where it’s a view down into the marina and old town areas. Here are three samples, some pictures over the weekend.

This is a view of the one time ‘Fishermen’s Beach’ from the hill across the other side of the bay.

And this is a close up of people sitting in the sun outside the beach restaurant ‘O Farol’ (The Lighthouse) – it was only about 17ºC but pleasant enough as there was little wind.

The light was pretty good. This is Quarteira, about 9 miles or 14km across the sea from where I was standing.

The sky wasn’t really as dark as that!

Some views over Albufeira

It was a fairly nice day yesterday. These are pictures taken from the hill known as ‘Bem Parece’ behind where I live. Taken using small camera.

The first shows the Eden Resort in the foreground with the white buildings of Clube Albufeira to the middle right. This is looking north towards the hills.

This is the Caliços area to the north of the old town alongside the N395 road to Ferreiras.

And now looking east across the bay to the red cliffs of Falesia beach and the white towers of Vilamoura and Quarteira. The red building just to the right of centre is the Aqua Pedras dos Bicos hotel in Oura.

Albufeira local wildlife

Well perhaps not really wildlife as they are behind a fence, but I was totally unaware of them until yesterday! Location about 1km from where I live.

The Cerro Branco area of Albufeira seen from the other side of the old town centre. The trees are those in the square.

It was a bit misty but here’s a couple of pictures taken from high up on Cerro D’Aguia, to the west of town near where I live.

The Cerro da Piedade or Windmill hill area.

And the Montechoro area showing the Hotel Jupiter (formerly the Hotel Montechoro), Vila Magna and on the right Janelas do Mar.

And some of the open countryside behind where I live. This picture was taken from the roof of an abandoned farmhouse, to which this land probably once belonged.
