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!

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!
