I love Sunday’s in the eastern Algarve as for me it speaks of family time and because I enjoy the people here so much, I thoroughly enjoy seeing them out in their Sunday best enjoying the time socially with their families, especially the little children.
Today we had decided to head to Cacela Velha and a favourite restaurant Restaurante Casa Velha…how unique is that???? LOL What a feast we ended up enjoying. We stood in line, people watching, for almost 45 minutes, which actually flew by.
WE both love the view that Cacela Velha provides….sandbars, blue ocean, sandy beaches.
Patricia and myself competing with the roses…….who do you think is more attractive?
Madam Patricia et Monsieur Marc!
This is Pat’s enormous plate of fresh grilled tuna under a bed of onions……….what a huge amount of food and amazingly delicious.
Marc’s seafood rice……he ate and ate and ate and ate and still couldn’t reach bottom.
My densely rick octopus rice…..like Marc, I ate till my jaws needed a rest and I too didn’t hit bottom
Marc’s pumpkin and almond cake…..his very very favourite in the Algarve.
Marc’s face as he tasted his very favourite dessert in the Algarve. That is happy personified!!!
Roses on that patio of the restaurant.
The Princess and the Bougainvillea…..tell me that isn’t a title you would read?????
Pinkish white bougainvillea….
Heavenly scented yellow roses
Cacela Velha view
Determined wind surfers
Tranquility on the beach
Off int he distance.
The King and Queen of trouble
This certainly kept my attention!
We had a great day………..we truly keep pinching ourselves with delight at our great fortune. Once home we all fell into our own projects for a few hours then suddenly I had the urge to walk on the beach so Patricia and myself headed off for Fuzeta while Marc finished off a piece of work he was almost done.
High tide in Fuzeta
A happy walk along the beach.
While at home the honeysuckle scents and sneaks along the pool patio
The caper buds continue to burst into bloom
And finally, our first passion flower has erupted!!
