Cast ashore, 31 August 2022

While I was swimming in the warm water, about 10m away this amazing creature was being washed up onto the beach. We thought it was a dead fish next to a plastic bag at first, but closer inspection showed it to be a beautiful Portuguese Man o’War. A few times a wave caught the creatureContinue reading “Cast ashore, 31 August 2022”

A few random images of the beach, 10 August 2022

We’ve been busy these past few days. After all, those tans won’t create themselves. It takes effort. Anyhow, here are a few random images from the past few days. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/a-few-random-images-of-beach-09-august.html

Ferias 2021: our daily view of the beach, 3 September 2021

No views of the sea today. Why not, you ask. Well, thought you already had too much of a good thing. So today we’re concentrating on the main character of our beach, the cliffs. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-3.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 31 August 2021

On the whole it was a lovely day, with warm water and blue skies. Later though the clouds drew in leaving an overcast sunset that ended on a glorious note. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-31.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 30 August 2021

Today was just … different. We headed for the beach just before noon on a lovely sunny day. There was no traffic at all on the walk to the beach, and ahead us was a clear blue sky. However, as we drew near the beach it became clear that there was a haze over theContinue reading “Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 30 August 2021”

Fun with waves, 26 August 2021

It was tough to have a little fun with the waves today as the sea was just so … flat. However,  in the wave cycle there were a good couple of ‘splashy’ waves that you could have fun with. There’s a dark side, though: these waves that are so nice are actually part of aContinue reading “Fun with waves, 26 August 2021”

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 22 August 2021

It was almost as if the beach wanted to make up for the previous day’s unpleasantness. The sea was almost flat, the water was warm, and it was just lovely. https://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/08/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-21.html

Ferias 2021: a strange day on the beach, 21 August 2021

It was a lovely day weather-wise, but although we went to the beach there wasn’t an opportunity to go into the water. We began receiving news from early morning sunbathers that something strange was happening on the beach. Thousands of dead carapão, a fish like a large sardine, were being washed up on the beach. WhenContinue reading “Ferias 2021: a strange day on the beach, 21 August 2021”
