It’s typical April weather at the mo, one minute pouring down with rain and another hot and sunny. We’ve managed to make the most of the blue skies though, along with the walk near casa azul we’ve also been geocaching again and managed to find some lovely spots in the country.
We’ll certainly be returning for a dip in the summer. There are loads of these river swimming pools in the region which I think are a fantastic idea, although a touch parky no doubt.
Plus we had our very first meal at the house. Richard dusted off the barbecue and we had huge pork chops and salad, washed down with some vinho verde, in the evening sun. It really was lovely but made me even more impatient to move in (the builders absent both from this blog and the house).
We are also making the most of the rain too. The shed now has guttering and is attached to a huge plastic water tank which fits niftily behind it and away from view and as I type is filling up with water.
And if anyone can identify the wild flowers growing along the drive that’d be much appreciated – I’ve spent far too long googling and got nowhere (although I think it’s a lamiaceae/labiatae)!
