Been back in Algarve a few days now, a relief from the storms of the UK. One o’clock today and a tourist boat was static only a few yards off shore, with a smaller boat hovering alongside. Not wishing to put down my glass of chilled white wine, but curious nevertheless, I picked up my binoculars for a look see.

Played Golf today at Penina, near Portimao, Algarve, Portugal. Very hot. This is the place where the Beatles stayed for a few days in 1968. Paul McCartney wrote a song called Penina and gave it away to Jotta Herre, the house band. It was also recorded by Carlos Mendes. They had a bit of a hit with it, you can find it on Youtube. The golf well! Looking for a Mystery Thriller Learn more
