Winter break

On Sunday I rang my daughter in law .  Was she ready for a short winter break . 6 o/clock Monday morning we were off to Portugal for a few days .
We stayed in a fabulous hotel . The only hotel in the area . All bedrooms facing the sea .
We were given what was called a superior room . For a last minute booking we could not have done better .Every thing was top notch . Lots of residents over wintering for several months .It really gave us a taste of retiring to the sun . Long walks on the beach, complimentary coach trips .An organised walk . fun bingo evenings , the winning prize a cuppa coffee . A couple of quiz evenings , we came about half way on the score line each time , in other words we failed miserably .
We saw men dredging for cockles ,their bicycles on the sand with nets tied to the handlebars. 
I ask myself what am I doing back here in the cold and rain .
On my return I visited family in  Bristol . I'm hoping after seeing my patchwork quilts on the beds it will give me the urge to sew again .

Yes indeed, what are we doing back here is cold, windy and wet England. No for long though! Yipee!!!!!!!!

A friend of mine spends 3 months in the Winter in Portugal, and returns feeling better!

sounds like a good break, never been to Portugal but maybe one day I will, needs to have a passport fist though.
