Just a quick note to say I won't be around from tomorrow, as we are off to Portugal until July 9th. We rent an apartment in a tiny fishing village at the eastern end of the Algarve, where tourists rarely go. We first came here with our children over 30 years ago & little has changed. I have plenty of reading matter, I have my swimming stuff, and hope to just relax. Hubby will go for an early morning walk each day & bring fresh bread back with him.

We may indulge in the wine - purely to help the Portuguese economy, of course.

Hope you all keep as well as you can, & if anyone else is going on holiday, do have a lovely time.

    Oooh I'm envious! In the late '60s I had a wonderful month at Lisbon Uni doing a summer course and I then went up north to stay with some friends I'd made there. Lovely country. Lovely people. Have fun, Tezz.

    We've never been to Lisbon, SW, as it's a fair trek from Santa Luzia. You are right about the people - we've made many friends in the village over the years, all Portuguese, and in some cases, watched their children grow.
