I didn’t know there were such things until I spotted these two outside the CAMRA beer tent at the cricket yesterday. Does anyone have any more?

First, the best stall in Loulé market. The proper indoor one, not the trashy tourist one.

More of Loulé and São Bras later when i have sorted pictures. Meanwhile, here’s my Saturday afternoon –

Horrible scenes in the Cavern on New Year’s Eve and some shots of the firwork display.


I had to go out for a a short while this afternoon so I took the camera with me. Bright sunshine, about 15C, a little windy and the light was very good. In town, final preparations were under way for the big New Year’s Eve event. A few pictures I took.

The rest here :

An eventful year! Thanks to everyone who visits for the many positive comments and feedback. I hope your 2017 will be a good one. For me, the milestone of birthday number 65 will be reached in September and Her Majesty’s Government will be giving me lots of extra money to spend on beer!

The big New Year’s Eve event here in Albufeira attracts tens of thousands for the music and midnight firework show. The weather forecast is good, so depending on the amount of this I get down tonight, I may have some pictures to show tomorrow.


Happy New Year in advance.


Cricket at Tunbridge Wells

The annual Kent County Cricket Club festival week at Tunbridge Wells has been moved this year from its long standing traditional slot at the end of May. This new mid-July slot was chosen in the hope that we would actually be able to watch some cricket rather than rain lashing down.

So far, good. Today, Sunday, started with heavy rain but that was gone by 9am. They day got better and better until by late afternoon the sun was shining from almost cloudless skies and it actually felt hot.

A good day’s play, the first in this four day match, sunshine and beer at £3.20 in the Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) tent made for a pretty good day.

This is the Camra tent, where a contented bunch of beer bores (people I know) spent the day with pints in hand. Various different beers appeared during the day and when one barrel emptied, another was opened.

I recall Harvey’s Dark Mild, Westerham Ales Summer Perle, Whistable East India Pale Ale and there were more.
