We went to the beach this morning as we’ve got family visiting. The beach season has ended here in the Eastern Algarve meaning no beds and parasols, and no lifeguard on duty. Today the sea was quite rough with very large waves. I do wonder if they are due to hurricane Ophelia in the Atlantic Ocean or not. Either way we kept a close eye (and hands) on BattleKid and his cousin. Here’s a picture I caught of one breaking at the shoreline.

Yesterday we went to visit our local park. It is somewhat different from the UK parks, with alot of brush, dirt tracks and trees that are much smaller than those in the UK. It was also the location of a fire during the summer and we came upon some trees with evidence of fire damage. They caught my eye and I captured these two pictures.

One thing I will miss this year is our annual trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. Since discovering it in 2012, we have taken an annual trip every year. I have photographed BattleKid there for the last three years and we’ve always enjoyed ourselves. But alas, we won’t make it this year. Here are a few pictures I took during our first trip there.

On our last evening in Yellowstone National Park, we went to the Wild West Cookout, which was brilliant. On the way back to our accommodation outside Yellowstone, we took a drive along the River Drive on the way towards the West Yellowstone gate. It was getting late and the sun had set but the scenery and colours along the river drive were amazing. It was the most fitting end to our trip to the most amazing place we’ve had the privilege of visiting.

As some of you know we’ve recently returned from a two-week road trip in North West America. I haven’t had time to go through all my photos but here are two I took on my phone in Yellowstone National Park.
The first is Gibbon Falls at about 8.30am. The light was just incredible and I am hoping the pictures I got on my DSLR do it some justice. The second picture is of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River and was simply stunning. Worth the hike back up the hill from the viewing point.
