in all of my time on the algarve i have only seen the ocean as flat as this once before. there is no wave to be had anywhere. South coast is as flat as a witches tit, the west as flat as a plate of piss.
i had a small wager with Gentleman Jim on saturday. we had inspected two beaches and i told him that there would be nothing. he was convinced that we should try two other beaches but i said no. finally i agreed only if he bought the hot chocolates at armado if he were wrong.
seems my superior local knowledge paid off again – the chocolate was on JC.
so today, the forecast was for even less of a wave so i never even ventured out. put JC to work helping me shift some hard core ready for the new terrace.
tomorrow it is back to work, have a beautiful mazda V6 in a thousand pieces at the moment. if i can get that back together before xmas, i might venture back to england for xmas dinner
