Week 102

Friday 14th February 2020 to Thursday 20th February 2020

Friday we went for a walk along the coast to Burgau for lunch, It was a beautiful day and on the way back we saw some dolphins 😀

There must have been about 20 odd in 4 groups. One even came out of the water backwards and stood on it’s tail 😀 😀

This is the video I shot on my phone, it’ll probably take a few minutes to load…



This is the best still shot I got with my Samsung J5 on x4 zoom…

as you can see I won’t be winning Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020!

I’ve always been a bit sceptical of euphoria people say they experience watching dolphins and whales but I have to say even at some distance is was a magical experience 😀

I offered Julie €10 to stand on this ledge and jump up and down but she was too chicken.

Wednesday we went to Portimao to watch the start of the Volta ao Algarve. Welsh 2018 TdF winner Geraint Thomas, G to his mates, was taking part.

these days Julie self-identifies as Welsh and she met a fellow Welsh nutter while waiting for G

His bike was here…

Finally G arrives and Julie can pass on some tips.

After they set off we had a wander about the town and then Julie and her mate Sharon legged it to Lagos to watch the finish.

The finish in Lagos

I went to just outside the little town of Bensafrim to see the peloton in full flow…

I waited just over an hour for the peloton to arrive and it was gone in about 10 seconds; fanbloodytastic!

G finished the day in in 78th place.
