An Ode to the Coast of Many Colours

Sally White, 07 March, 2017
After a recent trip to the Algarve in southern Portugal, Inntravel's Sally White could not help but 'wax lyrical' about her time there.... literally.
 

Welcoming smiles and friendly faces
A feeling of genuine warmth
Sun shining on cliffs and coves
And a bright blue sky

Sublime seafood and sweet pastries
A taste of the sea breeze
Indulging in smooth fine wines
And a picnic on the beach

Green hills and woodland walks
A stork’s nest perched on a cliff
Long sweeping sandy beaches
And the sparkle of the sea

Wildflowers familiar and exotic
A surprise – so many cork trees
Round the corner, cresting the hill
A view of the Atlantic

Beautiful breakfasts on a warm terrace
A cocktail as the sun goes down
Sleeping soundly in comfy beds
A sense of peace all around

Broccoli-shaped trees and sandy paths
A birdsong I don’t really know
Enjoying another wonderful walk
Along a coast of many colours
