Algarve images…

I have been reading The Resident on the web for many years, but have never looked at the Algarve Images section you have there until recently. I have been a visitor to Albufeira for some 15 years (17 visits) and, upon finding your photographs, they really cheered me up, as in Scotland, where I live, it is cold and damp. The Algarve Images photographs brought back many nice memories of better days in the sun. Thank you very much! I will pop back every so often to get my fix of sunshine.
