Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Odds and Ends
Just a few 'odds and ends' today, to finish with our Portuguese jaunt. More than anything else, the colourful nature of the Vilamoura area was most noticeable.
Despite the lack of unspoiled, wild spaces, the gardens, parks and hedges surrounding the built up areas were still full of flowers, even at this time of year.
Even where there were no flowers to enjoy, there were other things to attract the eye - such as the colourfully 'posh' marina with its plethora of expensive yachts.
To finish with the Algarve (for now at least), it is well worth a couple more pictures of the wetlands - which might not be there for much longer.
