Lagos: Algarve Coast
Today we went for a drive along the coast. It was another beautiful sunny day
Our first stop was the DIY store just outside
After Alvor we went to the DIY store in Portimao. We got there just in time – shops close at lunchtime on a Sunday. We managed to find a tap for the galley sink and a few more plumbing bits. From there we drove to Alberfeira. The drive was beautiful with the trees in blossom and grassy areas covered with yellow flowers. It really felt like spring was here.
In Alberfeira we had a drive around. As we got into the old town the roads got narrower and narrower and we got caught up in the one way system. We did think we might be lost in Alberfeira for ever – just driving round and round the same roads. Luckily we did find our way out and so we decided to park up and walk instead. The old part of Alberfeira was lovely – but the new areas full of tourist shops, bars and apartments were not so nice. I really don’t think we would like it there in the summer when it is full of British tourists.
We then headed back to
After a bit of a rest we cooked Mum and Dad dinner on board the boat.
