The Fort

One of the prettiest landmarks in Luz is here, it's a lovely place to have lunch on the terrace but the restaurant inside is lovely in the evenings. The Algarve temperatures can be deceiving, beautifully hot during the day and very chilly in the evenings. About 7pm a wind can pick up from the sea and can take you by surprise. So we always tend to book an inside table in restaurants as I am prone to commenting on how breezy it is! I never leave the house without my trusty pashmina to throw round my shoulders in the evenings. My husband, who seems to function on a different thermostat to me, never notices and has been known to shake his head, wrinkle his brow and take on a 'what is she talking about' look when I mention that I am a bit chilly.

Ah, Deb, it looks like you are having a lovely time. The photos of your whereabouts are gorgeous! Enjoy!!!

My DH looks at me and says, "Are you cold?" when he's watched me put on a jumper/socks/coat/whatever. It must be a man thing!

When we went to Spain (many, many years ago), we stayed in Pardors (government-run hotels in historic landmarks). One of the castles we stayed in (maybe in Cadiz) reminds me of this picture.
Would love to go back.
