Portugal Holiday Snaps
As you may know, I am appearing on the interview stage at the BBC Good Food Show in Glasgow today. So, as I am absent, I decided today share with you some photos from our recent holiday in the Algarve.
I often take random snaps. Things that amuse me, things I think are pretty cool, that sort of thing. So here are just a few snaps…please excuse my puerile sense of humor by the way…

The cockerel is the unofficial symbol of Portugal and is everywhere. It's better known as the Galo de Barcelos.

Another famous bird is this parrot which has been outside a bar in Albufeira forever! Capt. Jack Harkness seems to have teamed up with him now.

Sand sculptures are a big thing in the Algarve and in Old Town this year was an impressive Pirates of the Caribbean ship and crew.

Just up the road from the sculpture is a wine shop which stocks vino from Cliff Richard's Portuguese vineyard. Cliff is popular there and even had a street named after him.

Further past the Old Town in Albufeira is a shopping center and one store there is this lingerie shop. Always makes me laugh! And this year made me think of the brilliant blog - Keep Calm and Fanny On.

When we go abroad I always try and sneak in a McFlurry from MaccyD's. My Canadian blogger friend Steph at Kitchen Frolic and I always tweet each other what random flavor they have going on. This time it was a Lemon Cornetto McFlurry - delicious!

A blast from my past - C&A is still all the rage in Europe.

And why on earth would you call your sports shoe store 'The Athlete's Foot'. I guess it gets people talking!
