Wind, Waves, and Woctupus!!!

The Praia do Barril is one of the finest beaches of the eastern Algarve, it’s a great place for a beach walk, providing pristine white sands and crystal-clear sea waters. Today, although warm, was windy, the waves were constant and soothing in their steady rhythm. Also, perhaps because the wind was up, the fresh salty smell was more pronounced than usual. We loved it.

No photos to prove it BUT…..spur of the moment we decided to stop at Santa Luzia, a delightful fishing village on the eastern Algarve, which is famed for octopus.  We sat at our favourite restaurant there, Casa do Polvo Tasquinha, and treated ourselves to a wonderful octopus lunch, and for me a crisp icy cold vinho verde. We feel very privileged at this moment in time.
