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's a good life walking, cooking, photographing, volunteering, reading, blogging, and best of all spending time with family, friends but unfortunately no longer the cat.

  1. Algarve is beautiful! Yep, the short glimpse through the video did tempt me to follow through your post till the end. I must say it is a wonderful place to stroll and hike for nature lovers like me.

  2. That photo with the reflection in the water is truly stunning. Thank you for sharing it with us. I found your blog through a comment you left on Suzanne’s Picture Retirement. It’s nice to “meet” you!

  3. My husband and I planned our trip to Portugal for last April, needless to say it did not happen. we’re hoping to reschedule soon. Your posts are a lovely alternative while we await our ability to travel once again.
