A very nice sunny and warm day today, so I climbed the hill above Albufeira’s old town and took a few pictures.

Albufeira 20th September 2017

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on September 20, 2017 by cubsur51 Tagged: , , ,

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!

Summer days in Albufeira

In Albufeira,Algarve on August 26, 2016 by cubsur51 Tagged: , , ,

The last couple of weeks of the main summer holiday season are under way. Temperatures in the dayime are in the low 30’s C, the water is fairly warm and the sun is usually shining. Although I had no sooner opened my camera case yesterday afternoon when a large cloud blocked the sun for several minutes!

Albufeira is very busy still.

I took a walk along the two main beach areas and also into the old town (Centro Antigo) area. Here are some pictures of sun, sea and sand, also a few of the local cats who, on a hot afternoon, moved hardly so much as a whisker. I didn’t see most of the usual tribe up near the viewing platform, just two of them somewhere in the jungle having a squabble.
