Down here in the Algarve the temperature has remained rather warm but we have had a few days of rain. We have managed to get down to the beach a few times now. By some miracle of nature it happens to be one of the most sheltered spots around so even if it's cool and windy up in the town it can be almost hot down on the beach. The beach is surrounded by yellow cliffs that the girls have nicknamed 'The Golden Rock". I myself, have found it a little too cool to actually jump in the water but that hasn't stopped Calla and Maya. They would spend all day every day down on the beach if we let them. They are mesmerized by the waves and love to try to either jump over them or run away from them. The first day that they were down there they ran around without taking a break for two hours! Maya was sick of her bathing suit so she decided to throw it aside. It was so funny!
We have taken to watching the Olympics in the evenings. The live coverage starts around 4:00 pm here and goes on into the night. We tend to just watch after supper and the girls have gone to bed. We really enjoyed watching the snowboarding last night. The coverage has been quite good and I do love to listen to the Scottish announcers and their lovely sayings! The other night they were commenting on some 'untidy' skiing. : )
As promised here are a few pictures:

Love to you all,
