Boating in Algarve!

By Chinga
The Theme this Week: The sky! Images captured in a boat trip through the river Arade from Portimao to Silves - Algarve Portugal
If you are ever in Portimao enjoy the unique scenery whilst on a ride up the river Arade in a very pretty and very comfortable boat. During the trip you will see various kinds of luxuriant plants, different species of birds and other animals: - Storks, flamingos, white and grey herons, moorhens, river turtles, etc. You might even observe some good skies as I did in this trip... Once you arrive at Silves, you will have the opportunity to enjoy this historical Town and visit some of its beautiful landmarks – the Roman bridge, the Cathedral, the VII century Castle and the Museum.

I wish you wouldn't keep telling everyone about the Algarve IsabelWink, we love sitting by the river just past the boat sales people an ice cream and a coffee the river on one side and the fountains in the town square on the other. We have never done the boat ride as we always drive to Silves , maybe next year. Neil and Joan.
