Christmas Day-Armação de Pêra

For the last three Christmas mornings, we have headed off to Armação de Pêra, about 45 minutes from here, to enjoy watching the Santa Swim, which is organized to raise money for various charities.  It’s festive, colourful, and the beach area is gorgeous.    Marc and I had decided to skip it this year but with the surprise arrival of Chloe and Jasmine, we decided we would go.

The day was splendid.  The sunshine was strong and warm and we are still soaking it in following our rainy week.  We decided to stop at Porches on our way home to allow Jasmine to see another wonderful Algarvian beach.  They are only with us for five days and she can’t see it all but she will get to see quite a bit.

Once we returned home I got the turkey ready for the oven then Chloe, Jasmine and myself headed off for what turned out to be a 1.5 hour walk.  Marc sat on our upstairs terrace to enjoy painting and creating for a bit and when we returned home he had titivated the dining room table and it was quite beautiful…..sorry, no photos.

Dinner with Harald, Bela and us four was sublime……….what a wonderful Christmas Day 2019.   Merry Christmas from all of us to you.

  2. Looks like marvellous fun day was had by all! There is nothing better than Xmas dinner with family & friends. I am sure you will show Chloe & Jasmine a great Portugal experience in just a few days.
