The further adventures in ‘Me Van Oui, Snowbird’

We are into our 3rd week since we left the boat and now settled onto a campsite near Portimao on the Algarve in Portugal.

On the way here we stopped at the beautiful town of Silves for a few days.  A really lovely town steeped in history and beautiful buildings.

The local village has several cafes, bars and restaurants and we enjoyed a nice lunch at one yesterday.

The weather has really perked up in the last few days with unbroken sunshine and good temperature, it still gets a bit cold at night but it is still very comfortable in the van.

Time to chill out in the sun after the walk into the village, that will do!!

    Greetings from Roscommon:
    It’s good to see that you both seem to be coping reasonably well with the awful stresses and pressures of everyday life! You should give life classes. Enjoy it guys 😉
