where are you headed? I used to spend time in a friends villa at rocha brava near Carvoeiro, a charming fishing village right in the heart of Algarve, in the south of Portugal.

Weather is looking good for Asturias Simon so fingers crossed.

See you Thursday - we'll be around so any time is OK.

Ok, weīre in Spain!

Crossed the border yesterday and stayed at Castro-Urdiales with a great view of the Atlantic but sadly not Wifi. Canīt do photos at the mo cos my card reader isnīt working but maybe later.

We are now at Ian & Luisī about halfway along the coast and hoping to reach Portugal by Saturday. The boys are loving it and the roads arenīt too busy so the journey is going well.

More soon.

Thanks Ian

Turns out I didn't put my USB key through the wash after all so will sort some more pics in a bit.

Got some great pics of the Cathedral coast so Thanks Luis for recommending that one. We stayed at a campsite right next to it.

Go down the motorway till you get to the IC8, turn left. Keep on that road for about 20 miles then take the first turn to Pedrogao Grande, go up past the builders Merchants, then take the first left to Fontainhas, go down 1/2 a mile. When you hit the first S bends you are there, it is on the left, you cant miss it, big barn lots of olive trees etc... The car park is on the second right hander, on the left.

There might be sheep or cattle on land don't worry about them there Arlindo's

It was Irene recommended Picasa.
I'm not usually open to photo storage websites but as it is by Google and totally free I had a play. I'm well impressed with it.

As for the oranges ....
