River explorations in the east Algarve

I’ve been sharing hiking posts on this blog since January 2015, so guess it is not surprising even I have forgotten some of the posts I have written. It is one of the reasons I am looking forward to using the next couple of months to look back over what I have written and to share some of them again. First though a short video to tempt you to explore my archives with me.

Make sure you have the sound on!

The above was taken near Sapal de Baixo, on the south side of one of our favourite rivers the Riberia de Odeleite. It is not the first time I have filmed the goats here, nor the first time I have shared them with you. Check out this 2017 post – It maybe midwinter but it doesn’t feel like it. The post is one of more than a dozen posts I have written about our walks beside and above the Odeleite. It really is a favourite hiking area. If you have a few moments why not explore one or two of our other Odeleite hiking adventures;

Looking back at that final hike reminds me of another video I took of the views from the hills above Foz de Odeleite. I will dig it out ready for next week’s adventures in the archives when I will also share some of our Guadiana hiking trips. For now though here’s a look at the view behind me if I had been looking the other way when I was filming the goats. This is a wonderful river valley.

It had been a good life walking, cooking, photographing, volunteering, blogging, and best of all spending time with MrB, family, & friends. Sadly it no longer is. Suddenly and unexpectedly I have become a widow.

  1. What a truly fabulous collection of walks. You make walking in Portugal seem a more than attractive option. But with all these photos and accounts, I almost feel as if I went along with you. Of course I’ve only skim-read them so far. A treat for later to revisit at least one or two of them maybe?

    1. Awww thanks Margaret, and yes in the right areas there are so many great walks to do. The Algarve in particular has lots of open countryside so easy to walk

  2. There may be an odd one in here I’ve missed? If I have time I’ll check through later. You are so good at videos! I usually forget to take one and if I do they’re wobbly πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. That video of yours, you sure had to wait for a lot of animals to cross the road. There has to be a joke there somewhere. Love the reflections in your photo too!

Love to hear your thoughts
