What an amazing couple of days we’ve been enjoying weatherwise. Breakfast outside on the patio both days followed by lazy hypnotizing hours listening to birds, enjoying reading, playing on electronics, listening to more birds and basically hanging out till we are ready to head off on one errand or another. A retirees paradise for sure.
We enjoyed a marvellous walk around the subdivision and the surrounding countryside yesterday. All kinds of greenery popping up through the earth and in a few days I’m certain we’ll be posting photos of beautiful wild flowers. After lunch at home Pat, Gary and myself headed off to Estoi to pick up Gwen and run an errand in Tavira. So gorgeous driving through the mountains with the sea glistening off in the distance.
Marc had opted to stay at home as he had lost his glasses on the beach yesterday and his eyes were a bit tired, which is why our first stop of today was……………….
New spectacles will be ready in a few days and he will be a happy man again. It’s quite challenging living in prescription sunglasses, especially when those of us around him have been singing Pretty Woman everytime he walks in the room!!!!!! (Roy Orbison, for those of you who don’t know what I’m implying).
From there, lunch then another lovely walk on the Faro Beach. We are keeping our promise to ourselves to enjoy as many beach walks as we can.
One of the things I enjoy about the Faro Beach is that it is still a working beach and it’s a delight for me to see the fishermen working on their nets and other gear. I love that they wave at us.
We walked for a lengthy period till we arrived at one of the boardwalks that permitted us to circle back towards the main part of the island but through the tiny village of huts.
And so another wonderful day is coming to a close……….Marc prepared a wonderful soup for dinner, Patricia is finishing off a load of laundry, Gary is finalizing a jigsaw puzzle and here I sit………a grand and wonderful life we live.
