The algarve is a great place for fresh fish and seafood, and we normally eat it several times a week. But lately I have gone off it and become especially sensitive to the smell. So we had a few fish things in the freezer and every time I opened it all I could smell was the offensive items. So I asked my husband to eat them or I would throw them away, so he cooked some but left some of it in the fridge, so now the fridge is the offensive one. I cant get away from it, nose pegs at the ready.

I wont go into detail but we have had some surprising, unexpected and disappointing news recently which lead us to several things, one is lots of trips to the doctor and the other is a longer stay in the Algarve, neither is completely unwanted but the circumstances could be much better. Oh well, life goes on and we keep trying.

At least the weather seems to have settled down.

Yesterday we went out for lunch to a place called Fabrica, a tiny little village right on the beach, well the Ria Formosa. But it is such a beautiful place, with golden sands, blue water, it looks so exotic, you could imagine you were in the pacific or east coast of Australia. And I think to myself, why did I never find this place before (its only 10mins from my house) and think how lucky I am to live in this beauty. Beautiful
