We woke this morning to heavily clouded skies and a windless day. It almost felt oppressive. My sinuses are in full “allergy mode”, which means red itchy eyes, sneezing, stuffed head etc.. All in all, a pretty miserable morning, at least for me.
We lazed around till about 11 then decided to head into Faro, do a little shopping then head to the Faro beach, given Patricia had never been, and find a place for lunch. All in all, not a bad day afterall AND, being close to the beach, my sinuses cleared up!
We headed to the patio at Wax and lo and behold, a table vacated as we walked up. This is the second time this has happened for us……lucky buggers.
It was a delightful way to relax and spend an afternoon. It was high tide, the waves were lapping close to the patio and the beach was well attended despite it being overcast. After lunch we wandered from one end of the Faro Beach road to the other, probably about two or three kms. Many wonderful flowers in bloom.
Not a bad way to wile away the day……..we did stop in Faro for a bit, running a few errands. Tomorrow is a stat holiday, Liberation Day, here in Portugal. A very important holiday and many things will be closed. On the way home we spotted this old carriage, I thought it deserved a photo.
