May not look much from this photograph but underneath the arches (good title for a song there !) was the ‘Municipal Mercado’, along with the usual fruit and veg stalls were butchers, fish market and a shop selling a whole host of hams and cheeses. This was a 5 minute walk from the ‘Aire’
Just one of many views over Albufeira and the old town
I know another beach !! But hey ! What a beach !!
Very considerate ! To save our legs walking down hundreds of steps to get down to the town they provided ‘escalators’
Attractive sculpture near the beach !
Now a quiz question ! Why does Shazza look so happy ? Could it be the warm sunshine ? Could it be the lovely beach ? Could it be she is going shopping ? Could it be that she has just had food ?
Oh yes ! A beatiful square, relax on a bench under the shade of the trees listening to local street musicians or take a seat at one of the many pavement Cafés with a glass of something cool and just people watch.
As you explore the side streets you occasionally come across nice little viewing areas.

“Shazza !! Will you hurry up and take the Photo, I think the tide is coming in ” !!!
According to the ‘Oxford English Dictionary’ the most popular new word in use in 2013 is a ‘Selfy or is it Selfie’ ? However it is spelt, this is our’s !!
Just loved this !!
Okay Girls !! A Christmas gift for the man in your life perhaps ? Remember though, I can only bring so much back in the van !!
