Fare thee well....
The end of August and the holidaymakers and tourists are slowly packing their bags and returning home. Life in the Algarve should start returning to normal in the next two days- less traffic on the roads, we can reclaim our beaches again and find a quiet spot to sit down on them.
I always feel Dias Medievais in Castro Marim marks the end of Summer. It is the last big event and the town will now become quieter again. Medieval carousing,cajoling, cavorting and catering have now finished. Plenty good fare was partaken of over the four days but now the carnival is over-
Like a drum our hearts were beating, but the joys of love are fleeting for Pierrot and Columbine.
