47/52 My Sunday Photo: 19/11/2017

 As you’ll remember from last week’s My Sunday Photo, we made a return trip to Castro Marim castle. In the grounds were some tree logs and they caught my eye. I’m not sure if I like them as captured or in black and white.my sunday photo - black and white comparisons of logs

This weekend past we made a return visit to Castro Marim, this time bringing my parents. It is a town near Vila Real de Santo Antonio and one they haven’t visited before. It also boasts two castles, or forts, on opposite hills, one of which is open to the public. Our aim was to show them the castle while doing a dragon hunt for BattleKid, and afterwards enjoy a drink and toastie in the square beside the church.

As it was there was a huge market on in town, and we had a wander through, enjoying churros as an after-dragon-hunt treat. But I really noticed how grown up BattleKid is looking these days from some of the pictures I captured of him!

Yesterday we made a return visit to Castro Marim castle, which is only about 20 minutes from where we live. We also brought my parents as it is one town they haven’t visited here in the East Algarve. We did a dragon hunt for BattleKid and afterwards we visited the market in town which was the biggest I’ve seen so far.
But before we left the castle, a back cat came by and was quite friendly. We left her sitting on the steps outside the church which is located inside the castle. I just couldn’t get her to look at me while I took a picture of her!

It’s been a quiet week for us and we haven’t really been up to much. BattleKid has been in preschool and I’ve been scheduling posts. But on Wednesday it was a holiday here in Portugal so I got the craft box out. BattleKid made two masterpieces before we saw his avos (grandparents).

On Thursday we had an early dinner and managed a half an hour in our playground before it got dark. It’s getting dark around 6pm here in Portugal so just enough time is left after dinner for a quick slide or two.

We haven’t done much in the last few weeks and my cameras have not come out at all if I’m honest. But, a few weeks ago when we had family visiting, we went into Tavira for dinner. Here is a before and after shot of the Roman Bride and Cathedral (in the distance on the hill). It was a cloudy evening so the daylight shot isn’t great.
