Week 139

Friday 30th October 2020 to Thursday 5th November 2020

The week started off scorchio so we packed our butties and headed for Ponta da Piedade to walk to Porto de Mós.

Ponta da Piedade

We’d no sooner arrived at Ponta da Piedade when Julie spotted some dolphins 😀

It’s a nice and easy walk from Ponta da Piedade to Porto de Mós

the beach at Porto de Mós

It wasn’t sunshiny all week…

we had some mixed weather but there was enough sunshine for some more coastal walks

but sadly no more dolphin sightings

but I did spot this old 1980 Hymer in Luz 😀

Cfor has been keeping himself busy

It’s obviously exhausting being in charge…

will you look at the bloody size of him!

Even with a couple of dozen German kids tearing around on their bikes the site is very quiet and with France, Germany, much of Spain & Italy and now the UK in lockdown with travelling banned I can’t see it getting any busier here before Christmas. Portugal itself has put 122 municipalities into lockdown but only one of them is on the Algarve and the Portuguese idea of a lockdown is a 10pm curfew and no social mixing allowed in homes. No sign yet of any businesses being forced to close.

The week ended with a prolonged deluge

Our pitch flooded again!
