Algarve, Portugal - November 2017 (1)

In November 2017, my wife and I stayed a week in the beautiful Hotel Vila Galé Albacora near Tavira in the Algarve. The hotel used to be a picturesque historic tuna fishing village which has been converted into a comfortable resort, uniquely located in the Ria Formosa Natural Park. We stayed at this hotel before, some 16 years ago when it just opened its doors, and it was great to be back.

We had great sunny weather all week so when Marinka enjoyed staying at the beach or at the resort's lovely swimming pool, I had the opportunity to do a bit of birding in the Rio Formosa Natural Park and nearby birding hot spots like Quinta do Lago and the magnificent bird rich Lagoa de São Lourenço.
