At the eastern end of Alte are the springs (fontes) for which Alte is well known. The area around Fonte Pequena (little spring) is picturesque...a bridge across the stream, the beginning of a series of waterfalls as the water flows down the hillside, a grassy area on the banks ideal for picnicking, and ducks making the most of the waters and the sunshine!

A walk through Alte-Algarve-Portugal

Alte is a typical village of whitewashed houses with lattice work, handcrafted chimneys and narrow, cobbled streets nestling in the foothills of the Serra do Caldeirão.

100_3416

100_3420

The church is at the centre of the village, and there are numerous little cafes in the surrounding area, to relax at and soak up the tranquility of the village.

Songs of Freedom-Lagos

He used to be a bank employee for many years of his life until one day he decided to step out into freedom and light.Didier travels like the minstrels of medieval times without luggage or other baggage than his music and his smile.He travels on trains for a song and sometimes hitches a ride for a smile.

100_3390

He sings of clear skies and cristal waters,of love and waves of light.He makes up melodies and words telling you stories of his inner and outer travels....

100_3391

Free like a bird he comes and goes as he likes and sometimes travels for hundreds of miles following only his heart and inspiration...

100_3400

He is like a breath of cool wind ,a ray of unconditional love,he likes what he has and does not want more,he truly follows his dream .....

100_3401

Dancing with the waves and following the stars...

100_3403

Didier ,I hope to meet you again.....

à bientôt...

Spring Storm-Lagos

There has been quite a strong wind for a few days ..the waves were crowned with foam as far as one could see.

100_2849

100_2851

Boats for viewing the famous grottos or the dolphins were unable to go out and only very few fishing boats tried to brave the powerful Atlantic ocean.

Most spectacular were the waves around the old fort build in the  late 17th century as a defence against the British Fleet led in those days by Sir Francis Drake.

It is also known as the Forte do Pau da Bandeira or the Forte de Nossa Senhora da Penha de França on the waterfront near the entrance to the harbour. The stone inscription over the main door indicates that it was originally dedicated to Santa Virgem Senhora da Penha de França—whence one of its names; "Ponta da Bandeira" (or "Pau da Bandeira") are names of the area of Lagos where it actually stands.

It is one of my favourite landmarks ....

Barnacles

Barnacles are crustaceans that have jointed legs             and shells of connected overlapping plates. Instead of crawling             after food, they glue themselves to rocks, ships, pillings, abalones,             and maybe even whales and wait for food to wash by. ....
Sometimes if one looks carefully there is beauty in small things....

The old fishing Harbour-Lagos

Lagos,in the western Algarve,is full of historical interest with it's origins dating as far back as 2000 years BC when it was known as Lacobriga.
Lagos has always had a seafaring connection, originally visited by Phoenicians and Carthaginians and then, during the 15th century, was the base for the 'voyages of the Discoveries' instigated by Henry the Navigator when trade between Africa and Portugal brought a great deal of wealth into the town.
Today there is only the Marina with its many private Yachts and the old fishing harbour....and yet the salty smell and wind evoke the feeling of freedom and far away lands.

When I asked him about it he showed me his little bird....

He had found it slightly wounded in the street and had picked it up.After a while of resting in his hand the little bird hopped up his arm ..onto his shoulder..and then found shelter in Oezgur Baba's beautiful beard.
After a few hours when he had rested sufficiently the little bird flew away....

An ancient harbour-Portugal

Lagos is a charming,small town snuggled in a bay in the western Algarve.
It is full of historical interest with it's origins dating as far back as 2000 years BC when it was known as Lacobriga. Lagos has always had a seafaring connection, originally visited by Phoenicians and Carthaginians and then, during the 15th century, was the base for the 'voyages of the Discoveries' instigated by Henry the Navigator when trade between Africa and Portugal brought a great deal of wealth into the town.
