algarve, part two

we really loved the place we stayed in the algarve. our airbnb was in an apartment building just up a path from this amazing beach:

and included access to this pool, which moses loved:

we spent our saturday morning playing at the beach and the pool, and it was wonderful.

and in the afternoon we visited a few other beaches and viewpoints nearby.

we ended the day at praia de camilo and spent another magical sunsetty hour on the beach as a family. it was dreamy.

on sunday morning, i woke up feeling really nauseated. watching the sunrise from our airbnb's balcony cheered me up...

...but definitely didn't cure me. even though i was feeling a little awful, we got in the car to go to a lighthouse and village that had been recommended by friends (and that i was so excited to see!). long story short, we didn't make it to our destinations because both moses and i threw up in the car...eek! and ian joined the barf party a little later in the day :(

we spent sunday feeling pretty terrible, and watching general conference. we all felt okay enough by evening to take a little stroll through the town of lagos (a few minutes' walk from our airbnb). there were some charming, colourful corners to enjoy.

the next morning we were mostly feeling all better, and got to take a short boat ride along the incredible algarve coast and into stunning sea caves - those pictures coming next :)
