Week 44

Day 302 – Friday 4th January 2019

A sunny but slightly chilly day. Didn’t do a lot apart from going for spin in the countryside on Zippy then played petanque.

a des res Portugueses style. They can’t want more a €50 for it surely.

 Day 303 – Saturday 5th January 2019

Beautiful sunny day. This time next week we are setting off on a 9 week journey to Antibes traveling along the Spanish Mediterranean coast so in preparation I am going to have a whole week of complete rest & relaxation.

Watched the United v Reading match down at the Bull in Luz

We played petanque in the afternoon. Julie has got other people joining in her little celebration dance now.

Day 304 – Sunday 6th January 2019

Very sunny day. It was 22°C in the shade at lunch time and blisteringly hot in the sun.

I got fried having lunch in Lagos.

African Stew, some sweet potato and black beans in a vaguely currylike sauce with a chopped up date on top. I really don’t know why I bother ordering anything other than omelette & chips in Portugal.

Down at Decathlon I treated myself to some new boules

Day 305 – Monday 7th January 2019

Beautiful sunny day.

Cfor is loving the sun

After lunch I had a practice with my new boules. It paid off later when our side won both their matches 😀

Day 306 – Tuesday 8th January 2019

A Sunny day. We had a trip to the British Supermarket in Portimao. It has a mixture of Waitrose & Iceland stuff. I stocked up on No Bull burgers. Everything else you can buy in Portuguese shops.

Day 307 – Wednesday 9th January 2019

Beautiful day, can’t remember the last time I saw a cloud. After lunch had a ride out on Zippy.

Ponta de Piedale

Praia Dona Ana

Belgian hippies

 Day 308 – Thursday 10th January 2019

What a pulavour with Cfor this morning. He wanted to go out at 0515. Then there was a hoo-ha outside the van with cats fighting. We got him inside and almost as soon as he’d eaten his breakfast he was sick on the sofa! Little twat.

he’s learnt to open the Roman blinds!

well, he does like the sun on his face

Had a spin in the countryside on Zippy in the afternoon then petanque.

Everytime I go riding round the Algarve countryside I keep seeing old Renault 4s. They stopped making them 25 years ago

The shooter on my side was very good. He put the jack over a 6ft wall and 30m into a car park!

Tomorrow we pack up and get ready for our 9 week journey along the Spanish coast. After sitting on our arses in Portugal for 12 weeks I expect it’ll be quite a shock to the system but we are both looking forward to some new sights and sounds.
