Just on the outskirts of the village of Estoi, in what was once probably a rural setting, sits a lovely site containing the Roman Ruins of Milreu, which contains some of the best preserved Roman remains found in the Algarve. This Roman villa included a large temple and a bathing complex containing many mosaics, which are still visible in several of the baths as well as along the pool area located outside the temple. As James didn’t make it there last year he and I headed off this morning to enjoy a leisurely walk with the ruins as our destination.
The day was sunny and quite warm and we lazed along like two aged lizards!!! There certainly wasn’t any speed to our explorations. Once done we headed back to the quinta to collect Marc, who was busy in the kitchen at home, and head off to the square for lunch. Lovely roasted chicken legs. Forgot to photograph.
Marc was working on a new piece of art and James and I were both still up to something and decided to drive into Fuzeta, enjoy a walk along the beach and the harbour.
A delightful afternoon culminating in a drink with Ana and Simão on the patio of the restaurant. Leftover food from Christmas Day was to be our meal, an effortless endeavor so we relaxed, enjoyed our drink and visit then headed home to a great evening meal. Life is good. And my favourite shot from today…….you can see and feel the fun and energy.
