The marina was busier this time, but one or two places have not opened. Karting and bowling are both now open.

The Great Wall is getting a coat of paint. Battleship grey. It was still pretty quiet down there but some boat trips were coming and going, half empty as the laws rules apply tothem also.

The houseboats look great. Don’t know how much for a week but I was talking to a Dutch family that have a place in Albufeira and a small boat in the Marina. They were having a great day drinking wine on the roof. They told me it cost them 130 euros for the day to hire. 

Now before someone says that’s crazy expensive, the nearest houseboat (the biggest one) can accommodate up to 10 people, so that makes it 13 each. I shall report back on September as there is possibility I will be on it. 

There is a spar beside the houseboat for all your needs. 🍻🍻🍻🍾🍾🍾

The Ten Pin bowling alley is open again. Obviously strict rules about numbers, wearing masks etc but prices are lower than they were. One game €5 per person, two games €7,50.

The places I marked as not open a while back remain closed.

Strange houseboats.  More like a shed on a couple of canoes.  And where will they go with those outboard motors?  They appear to have next to no draught so they'll wallow like the devil in lively water.
Interesting tbough. Thanks for the photo's.

These strange craft are now moored at the marina, down at the SPAR end. The flag says The Houseboat Company.

   

Meanwhile the marina as a whole is still very quiet. A few boat trips are running but most boats are still laid up. The places like Pipa's that I reported as closed a few days ago are still closed.
