Praia de Garrao, Algarve – Portugal

We had a relaxing day today. We started the day with a walk at Ria Formosa which runs along some of the holes on the San Lorenzo Golf Course, along some sand dunes and then out to the salt lakes.

We then hit the driving range for a bit of much needed practice.

We then decided to check out Maria’s Beach Restaurant at Garrao which is a beach between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago. It is a stunning beach and we had a nice lunch at Maria’s.

True to form Steve befriended a Scottish couple, Gus & Sheila. It turns out they have a house just around the corner from us so we are going there for a BBQ on Monday night. They travelled by campervan from Aberdeen in Scotland – it took them 4 days. They have two Wheaten Terriers called Lucy & Matt who also travelled with them to the Algarve. They have been here for the past 5 months and told us the weather we have been having is unseasonably warm for this time of year – hey, we are OK with this.








This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
