Past memories

The last time we were here at this time of year was in 2018, and so our return in a few weeks is going to feel very special. We don’t know yet how long this sojourn will be, as whilst we are registered as resident there remain Brexit complications for us and other Brits who wish to continue to lead “swallow” lives in Europe. The conversations and research continue but whilst we wait for definitive answers I am going to look ahead to our evening constitutionals in the saltpans and around the harbour.

When we left in spring 2019 the town council was in the middle of implementing a major upgrade project along the seafront. So I expect one of my first posts on our return will be recording those changes. Today though I just wanted to remind myself what is hopefully unchanged – the skies and the views! This post is also an opportunity to catch up with some challenges including #PastSquares and a #LifeinColour.

If you cannot wait until the end of the month for new posts why not visit some past walks – here’s one from mid November 2018 and another from earlier in the same month. All are within sight of our rented accommodation.

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. Fingers crossed – now the Covid restrictions are at minimum levels it should be easier, the main issue will be length of stay in Portugal. We might be restricted initially because of driving licence issues

    1. You can always visit – maybe you and Debbie could travel together! I’d say Margaret too but think she will be coming by train or car if she ever comes out

    1. It is rather special Olhão as it is right on the estuary, and the old part of the town is lovely. Should be relatively quiet when we go as out of tourist season 🙂

Love to hear your thoughts
