Back to Portugal


Saturday 22nd April

We left Badajoz early this morning, and our son drove us three and a half hours south to Portimão in Portugal ~ the aim being to watch the F1 powerboat races. However, as it was far too windy, this afternoon’s qualifiers were cancelled. Never mind, we may get the chance tomorrow.

We walked along the main road, and then down onto the boardwalk of the beach, finding a decent looking restaurant, we stopped for a beer and something to eat.

Many volleyball matches were taking place in front of us, and people were jogging up and down, or off to the sea with their surfboards.

Later on we drove to Alvor, walked across wooden boardwalks to the ocean, found an outdoor bar to watch the sunset, then a tremendous fish restaurant for dinner, eating al fresco.

As always, thinking of you my darling

I think we went the wrong way down a one way street ~ we were tut-tutted at by a nun 🤔
