The Algarve area in Portugal has many wonderful beaches. This shot is in Albufeira, an interesting little town, with many intriguing features – including an outdoor, uncovered escalator!

Don’t cry…

Don’t cry because it’s over…smile because it happened. – Dr. Seuss

Having time to read (6 books!) doesn’t hurt either.
