The days were hot, at 38 degrees Centigrade, which in fahrenheit is 100.4 degrees, and on some days the temperature rose to 40 degrees, which for us was almost unbearable. Mel was eager for exercise, although she had been in the garden, so early morning walks when the temperature was lower, became a pleasant ritual. As dogs are not allowed on the beach, we walked instead along the sandy pathways on the cliff tops, and here are some photos, (quite a lot) of what we saw on these walks.
This is what the path looks like most of the time, but there are also a number of "Villas" on the cliff tops.
There was a soft breeze coming from the sea most mornings, and we took a litre each of water with us.
Collared Doves in the "Agave American cactus". It's common name is century plant.
When we are in Vau in October / November, Mel loves to walk along the sandy shore, and I love to collect shells.
The Yellow-Legged Gull.
The Algarve beaches never get crowded
