Something for our older viewers.  We heard that Cliff Richards vineyard is in the local area, the large sign at a roundabout was an obvious clue.  Today, we visited hoping to be invited in for a sample, may be a coffee and a chat, no chance.  We did visit and bought some wine, it is very nice.  [...]

Today we made another visit to Silves, the more often that we visit it, the more that we like it.  The title of this blog relates to the photo with the same heading.  If you look at the photo you will see lots of motor homes, a building, and more motorhomes.  The motorhomes stay there for [...]
