Vilamoura – Marina

Our main reason to be in Portugal was the boy’s sister wedding – which was just stunning – they got married on the clifftops overlooking the beach, where we spent a few hours drinking champers, dinner was served on a beautiful terrace and we partied till the early hours in a Moroccan themed lounge!

Whilst the majority of the trip was taken up with the wedding or wedding prep or wedding bbq-ing, the boy and I did have a few days to ourselves – one we spent sitting by the pool at the villa after the rest of the party had gone for their planes which was lovely and needed for him after his many trips to the airport to collect guests.

The other we spent driving up the coast to see some of the rest of the Algarve. We spent a couple of hours in Portimão, admiring the huge yachts and the posh beach bars with 4 poster beds on them and walking to the end of the break water, took a trip through Praia de Luz, a wander round Vilamoura and a few detours when we ignored the satnav!

Now we are back in the grey skies of the north just hoping the tan stays for a few more weeks.
