Yesterday I really should have been focusing on what we are taking next week but yet again found myself going through my Algarvian photographs.

Olhao's marina

A few of the photographs brought back such happy memories of our trip last year that I just had to share with you. They were all taken a year ago today.

They might even inspire you to get up at dawn as I did on this day in 2014! Fortunately at this time of year it doesn’t need to be at the crack of dawn. Today in the east Algarve the sun didn’t appear until 7:08am.

I’m not sure how lovely the sunrise is in Olhão this morning but hopefully it is another stunning one. If you are there let me know, and if you are elsewhere this week then still leave a comment below and tell me about your November sunrise.

The birds look like ghosts in this light.
