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.

Temperature 24ºC, make the most of it as it will become a lot cooler over the next 48 hours! Beyond the pier you can see how much sand was taken away in the recent storms.

Back to work on Porto pictures!

Around 70,000 people were at the New Year’s Eve event. I wasn’t, having succumbed to a virus infection! There was also a giant ‘cake bake’ charity event in the town on December 30th in aid of the local volunteer Fire Brigade.

Albufeira beach 30th November 2017

It has turned a lot colder! This morning a 8am it was only around 7ºC, about 8ºC cooler than the same time on Wednesday. Cold, dry, air is coming from the north ie inland.

Sorry if this is making you feel worse. I know a lot of you are in cold places, but as it was such a bright sunny day, I could not resist taking a few pictures on my way to the shops.

It was a little windy, temperature around 15ºC, a nice healthy walk along the beach perhaps? In the first picture you can see the canyon carved on Tuesday by the water coming from the storm drain outfall.

Visit to Estombar 25th November 2017

In Albufeira,soccer,Sports - football, soccer on November 26, 2017 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

A short trip by train to the town of Estombar to watch an Algarve League football match between Carvoeiro United and Albufeira’s team Imortal. A nice afternoon out, particularly as Imortal won the game 4-0. Also, now that I am past the magic age, I can go half price on the trains. The 34 minute trip cost me just €1,50 each way!

Match report and some pictures of the game for any sports fans at http://albufeira.com/forum/imortal-football-club-albufeira_topic6292_page35.html – scroll down the page please.

Meanwhile, some trip pictures, just for a bit of practice with my new camera really. It has a million functions, most of which I have no idea of!

Something we don’t want to see around here but it was obviously a controlled fire! This is just by the large Slide ‘n’ Splash amusement park, which is now closed for the winter.

A part of the town near the school has strange little metal statues. These are just two.

Some goalmouth action from the game. The Imortal goalkeeper, in blue, was rarely troubled and what he had to do, he did competently. Defenders are in red shirts.

They have conceded only two goals in their last six games, but all but one of those were against teams below them in the table.
