Fountain of youth

Dear Editor,

We are very happy to be returning to the Algarve once more. This will be our 16th visit. Living in Canada can be very hard on seniors like us, in our late 70s.

Our generous landlord allows me to store a bicycle in his lovely condo, which we rent each year. It’s a real bonus to be able to go bicycling and walking in February and March ‑ two of the worst winter months in Canada. Portugal for us is “The Fountain of Youth”. Yes, Ponce de Leon went the wrong way.

He could have found what he was looking for right under his nose.
