We're back again, and this time for a whole lot longer. We had a fantastic holiday in Portugal, beautiful weather, apartment, beaches, place, food, people, everything. I'm not going to bore you with a gazillion pictures and witterings about it all though, just a few.
This was the view from our apartment. It was taken in the morning and the temperature was already at 29 degrees. I don't do hot weather, not in the slightest, but there were strong breezes nearly all the time which kept me happy!
We had hired a car which not only helped us get from the airport, it let us explore some of the area. So 2 minutes down the road (yes, we explored a long way!) we found this beach, the longest one in the Algarve apparently. Lovely sandy beach. Warm(ish!) water and nice waves. It was very hot though, so much of the time I sat underneath a sun shade and knitted. Very, very relaxing!
Both children loved playing in the sea and spent much of their time in it.
This was the only picture Mr Stressy took of me - he'd far rather be on the photo than behind the camera - I'm much more modest and prefer to be on the other side of the lens!
I could also tell you about the time when eldest son took me on one of those rubber ring things that are towed behind a speed boat - but being a non-swimmer, the memory gives me the heebee geebees! I could tell you about the fabulous ice cream, the wonderful carbonara in the little Italian restaurant and the delicious shell fish. I could bemoan the fact that I didn't find a wool shop. Or that I was so scared in the plane that I spent much of the time in tears. I could tell you about the water slides, the yachts, the stray dogs, the living statues, the doughnut seller, the fish markets... oh I could tell you so much, but to be honest, I bet you aren't all that interested, and quite frankly, I have so much washing and ironing to do, I really don't have time to be sitting on the computer.
Knitting news tomorrow. Promise.
