I have just had the best week, the sun was shining, but my daughter and little granddaughter came to visit, we went to the beach, we explored the castles, we had lunch on the terraces (obviously not ours).
This is the reason we came here and to be honest every niggle and doubt I had just evaporated during the week, I feel so happy, maybe it had just been homesickness after all, for my family, or maybe it was just that I am getting a bit too old to live in dirt, but the house is habitable and I got to leave it and visit the area.
But the most memorable parts were going in to the field and picking oranges and making juice with our granddaughter, and discussing with her the fruit trees that she would like to have planted for her next visit which is during the next school holiday and seeing hoe interested she was in the building of the house.
There are no pictures of the house today or sad memes, but some photos of how beautiful the area is where we live. I hope you enjoy it.
Portugal is a truly beautiful country.
