Unedited and straight from the iPhone photos of our long weekend in Algarve, Portugal in November 2012. The weather was rainy but it gave way to sunny afternoons. We hired a car and toured Faro, Silves, Albufeira, Sagres and Lagos.
We stayed in Praia de Luz, in a huge apartment with a terrace providing a distant view of the ocean.
The sunsets were beautiful everywhere.
And of course, I pig out on fresh seafood.
And happy hours with €1 beer and cheap cocktails.
We visited a castle, beaches with blue sky and blue boats and went as far as the “edge of the world” in Sagres.
In an earlier blog post, I shared how easy this was with unplanned discoveries in the rugged cliffs and hidden coves of Algarve. We went home rejuvenated and ready for months of work again.
