The weather is still pretty poor but at least we have now had around 36 hours with no rain. I had to go into town yesterday, here is a montage of some pictures.

A brief interlude from rain

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on March 8, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: ,

All too brief! We had a few hours on Wednesday morning with no rain. The beach was rather windswept, only a few people were braving the weather. In the afternoon and evening we had a long period, hours, of heavy rain.

A few more here.

Albufeira is getting ready for New Year’s Eve

The town hosts a TV sponsored outdoor show with music and fireworks, broadcast nationally. Around 80,000 people descend on the town for a night of partying. There are plenty of people already in town, making a long weekend of it.

The stage is nearly ready.

Meanwhile visitors were enjoying some afternoon sunshine and, as you can see, children were happily playing in the sand.

It was a little brighter than the photo looks, this was at about 4pm today.

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.

Albufeira 20th September 2017

A normal day, went to a charity shop with some surplus items which they can sell to help the doggies and pussycats of town, then off to get my hair cut (looked terrible in the mirror this morning!) then to the supermarket to get some wine as birthday present for a friend. When I saw €9,99 bottles of this and that on sale for €2,99 I could not resist having a couple for myself. I feel the need to return without too much delay.

I had time to take a few pictures. It has been a fairly sunny day except that when you look out to sea it is quite misty. Temperature was up around 25ºC, the town is quite busy mainly with those who have no children at school, there are a lot of golfing parties here also.

Largo 25 de Abril and main town beach

The beach with all kinds of watery fun being had, including the inflatable water park.

Picture below taken at lunchtime 20th September 2107. For those who may not know the area, to the right are Turial Park apartments and to the left is the large building called Edificio Albufeira. The top end of the Avenida opens out into the main old town square, Largo Dr Enginheiro Duarte Pacheco. On the skyline at the right is the ill-fated Oceanville hotel and to the left is Albufeira Jardim 2.

Albufeira Rua Dom Afonso III, in the heart of the oldest part of town. The kind of pretty touristy picture that gets in the guidebooks. Reality check is a few yards further down the hill!
