I am back from two glorious weeks in Portugal and it did rain there also. What a lovely restful relaxing break we had. We stayed in the suites alba resort and spa.  I would certainly recommend this resort for couples or young families but teenagers would be bored silly.

I have come back refreshed and did miss my blogging friends.  Wi fi was literally non existent if you stood on one leg with iPad in one hand you might occasionally get a little signal. Bit this was a good thing I read so many books and magazines.

It was lovely to come back to sunny weather and break out the barbecue sadly today is wet again.

I am off to yoga and a week of detox back to reality for me.

Have a lovely week.

This was the view from my sunbed

The gardens were spectacular

A lovely infinity pool not a great picture

The lovely sea view
