Skywatch Friday – Portimao

Skywatch Friday is hosted here.  Today’s pics are some I took in Portimao on the Algarve in Portugal in 2006.  I love the colours and the contrast of the solid 16th century church and the ethereal sky.

C was playing golf (the trip to Portugal was made to play golf with his mates – a group of 24 of us had 12 days in Portugal in Cascais, near Lisbon, and the Algarve with 6 days golf) so MissN and I spent one day walking around Portimao.  We were staying at Praia da Rocha and Portimao was a quick bus trip or walk away.  The Algarve IS touristy  but has great charm, wonderful cheap food, great beaches, golf courses, weather…  It was cool to visit the sw tip of Europe at Sagres!

Here is MissN.  We had done some shopping! Actually everything she is wearing we bought in Portugal and the bag had been bought not half an hour before!

Some more Portimao photos.  Run down never looked so picturesque!:
