No challenges, I told myself. But there are always exceptions, aren’t there? Earlier this week I was walking along the revamped promenade at Olhão and wondering what Becky would make of it on her return. Sunset on water is so beguiling, isn’t it? This one came at the end of a packed day, in which we’d walked high in the hills above Tavira, lunched on toasties on the waterfront at Santa Luzia, driven to Faro for a little present shopping, and were heading wearily home when I suggested stopping for supper in Olhão. My son James hadn’t been there for many years, and approved the changes. He also enjoyed the Mexican food.
It’s raining softly this morning but it’s welcome rain, and I’m sure it won’t deter her on arrival. Welcome back, hon!
