Sunny days still in Albufeira

In Albufeira,Algarve,Portugal on April 19, 2017 by cubsur51 Tagged: , , , ,

On Monday I was at a wedding and then reception party. I blame the bride’s father totally for my condition on Tuesday morning.

So yesterday afternoon I took a walk into town to try to clear my head and body. Failed dismally, had relapse around tea-time but I did manage to take a few pictures of the busy beaches. It was 26ºC, the beaches were busy with local people and visitors on Easter holidays.

Some Albufeira pictures

Here are links to some of the photos I took on my little walkabout yesterday. There is a larger album of general views to follow which I will post tomorrow.

Albufeira in black and white

I took a few pictures of the town in black and white. If you can ignore the modern street signs and satellite dishes, there is an air on antiquity about some of them.

Albufeira wildlife – SORRY PREVIOUS LINK DID NOT WORK THIS ONE WILL

Albufeira has an abundance of wildlife. Some of them were enjoying yesterday’s sun.

This disaster looms over the town, reminding everyone of the follies of developer’s and corrupt local officials greed. It has now stayed empty for over three years, during which time the company that built it has gone bust and a lot of people who bought ‘off plan’ have to all intents and purposes lost their money.  Many of you will know what happens to properties that have remained sealed and unused for three or four years. It will probably cost them more to put things right than it did to build them in the first place.

This old hotel right on the beach is being completely rebuilt within the original facade. Completion is due, they say, in August 2013 but I wouldn’t bet on it.

I was prevailed upon to risk life and limb by climbing over a four foot high wall (with a dodgy knee!) then stand far too close to a cliff edge. We had two old postcard views of the area (the last two pictures in this album) and the task was to try to get the same view today. Unfortunately the cliff has receded a little and there was a big bush in the way. And the postcard photographer had a wider angle lens than me. But I think I got fairly close.

I hope you like these. All being well, more to come tomorrow.
