A Prime Location, Street Art And A Seagull.


We noticed this house and garden for sale.  A kind taxi lady phoned the seller for us and texted us back with the price.  Are you sitting down?  They wanted 440000 Euros for it!  No doubt its in a prime location and one day there will be a concrete block of holiday apartments on the site?  So called progress I suppose?












We noticed that the utilities boxes are painted by some very talented artists and they cover up any graffiti.



 A friendly seagull called Sid.  He waited patiently every day for any tit bits.  I think he originated in Blighty because chips were part of his diet.

  1. Nice to see the street art on the electricity boxes, makes a place very alive to see art like this.

  3. Hell what a price. I'd say, come to Greece, but it just wouldn't be the same! No way can you beat the Algarve. Keep searching. There's got to be something quaint, liveable and affordable

  4. I know LA. We want a small place in the countryside not far from the coast. Preferably in walking distance of a shop, bar and public transport. It's got to have a garden or a piece of land like an allotment to grow fruit and veg and sit in and enjoy the sun. Thanks!

  5. The sky is a blue I don't see often, even in summer. The price is so big. I suppose it's more than half a million dollars.

  6. Hi Joanne. A taxi driver told me that Portugal had no rain for nine months last year. Property is a lot cheaper inland. The house in the picture is very close to the sea. Thanks.

  7. Wow! Just the thought of living in that climate fair makes me drool! I always wanted to live by the sea but circumstances got in the way.

  9. That's Sid the Seagull alright. I'd recognize him anywhere. He was in Rovinj last time I saw him. They do get about don't they?

  10. They always wear the same clothes don't they? Good win for the Welsh rugby lads on Saturday.

    Thanks Gwil!

  12. Yes I know there are some amazing chateaus in France. Wouldn't mind a walled kitchen garden. There are lots of cheaper Algarve property, especially in land. Thanks!

Pictures From My West Cork Gardens In June.

 I couldn't think of much to write about so I have had a week blog break.  This morning I walked around the gardens and the flowers were...
