Recovered from an apartment in our block during rebuilding. Made of wood.

Can anyone put a date on them? Just curious.

…and some sea. My upstairs neighbour is laying tiles, much thumping required getting into them into place. So I went for a walk down to the marina, Sun was shining, it was a bit windy, about 16ºC. About half the cafés and bars were open and they had a few customers.

A couple of samples below, the rest at https://1drv.ms/f/s!Am0w7qp9HCpqgvgztFp0aI-Ez4-jBw

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 – sunny November days

Monday 6th November at lunchtime. Sun loungers still out, people enjoying the beach in 21ºC of sunshine. Not bad at all for early November. The couple of rainy days last week are almost forgotten!

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!
