Another gorgeous and sunny day with plans for a lazy morning, lunch at Ana’s and a surprise birthday dinner in the evening. How much better could a day be huh?
Here we are at Ana’s, solving the problems of the world with our scintillating conversation!!!
Benoit enjoying the sunshine and he second to last Sunday in the Algarve.
Look out Vanna White……I think they should submit their applications to Bob Barker?????
Now here is a whole heap of double trouble. Carole and Marc……there is much lurking behind those smiles!
Noticed these two chimneys yesterday……has only taken four months of being here and practically walking past them at least once a day!
At the same time I spotted those last two chimneys, Marc spotted these.
Yes, Estoi’s lovely urinal wall still exists and never fails to make me smile
Ana takes good care of us with the best table on the patio…..our very own little “reserved” sign
Speaking of Ana, here she is enjoying a giggle with Marc.
Wonderful ham pizza.
Simon’s fabulous brazilian beef and bean dish.
Co conspirators…….I think Carole was propositioning Benoit and my understanding is, he said yes!!!!!
The patio at Ana’s.
We enjoyed a casual relaxing early afternoon together. Great food, lively conversations, which sometimes I think must annoy others but who cares. If people are put off by laughter and camaraderie, they should stay home.
And speaking of camaraderie…..a few hours later, we were all heading off to Carole’s for a surprise birthday for Guillaume……..what fun we had and what a feast!!!
The birthday boy on the right. Happy Birthday Guillaume.
That patio at the Seguin chateau!
Marc and Diane with a visiting pooch…….who has affectionately been dubbed Porto. A local stray.

André et Guillaume……..just back from a day at the beach and Tavira…..a birthday Guillaume will always remember.
Jessica……..whose short time in Portugal is about to end as she returns to Canada in another day or so.
These grasses were the must sublime colour.
I love the colour in this shot……..it speaks for itself.
Carole and André cooking up a storm.
Carole and yet another stray pooch….looking at her adoringly….hanging on her every word and the scent of octopus on her hands!!!!!
André and Patricia…….how serious does that conversation look??
Mon mari on the rooftop capturing the sunset.
A pensive Patty Anne. I love this shot.
Carole’s table setting.
Another angle of the table set for the 11 of us.
Marc and the chimney….both looking a little pink!!!!

What a feast we shared……..thanks to Carole who prepared it. We stayed into the early evening, enjoying conversation, wonderful music, fabulous food, very pleasant company and as you say, a beautiful sunset. A truly great day. see below ***********************************************************************C’était l’anniversaire de Guillaume, le fils d’André. Carole et les autres lui avaient préparé une jolie fête en soirée. Tout un festin et une surprise de voir Randy, Patricia, Garry, Diane, Benoît et moi ce sont joint au party. On a pas 24 ans tout les jours. J’ai crus voir une grande joie dans les yeux du jubilé quand on l’a surpris avec un grand cris de joie a l’unisson SURPRISE!!!!
J’ai toujours beaucoup aimer surprendre les fêter.
Autrement, le beau temps a décider de rester avec nous encore une journée. Après tous c’est jour de printemps. Par contre ça fait deux trois jours que je dit a qui veux bien l’entendre que j’ai l’impression qu’on est en plein mois de juillet. Je me trompe, c’est certain.
