View the map of our voyage track hereAfter visiting with Ceu’s family in Casegas for another month after our visit to England, we are now by ourselves on Life Part 2 down in Portimao, Algarve. The sun is shining, the sea is (reasonably) warm, the winds variable (we often get a fresh sea breeze in the afternoon) and life is good. We are just getting our traveler car fixed, which might take about a week to order in a new one, and then we will probably take off for theFaro area. In the meantime I am catching up with some online stuff, and looking for a windsurfer that I can buy. Not a lot else to report at the moment, really 🙂
Having tired of being first a doctor and then an internet entrepreneur, Dr. Noel Swanson figured he needed a new career. After briefly thinking about putting his vast experience of wind generators to good use for the benefit of the nation, he then decided that perhaps a career in landscaping was what he really wanted to do. And on his first day at work he successfully moved a pile of dirt from point A to point B – and then smoothed it all down nicely! Meanwhile, Ceu decided that potato farming was more up her street. However, it all seemed like a lot of hard work, so in the end they figured a nice swim was in order… Thanks Carlos and Elisa for the farming and landscaping experiences! 🙂
