I observe that the rock pinnacle on Albufeira's main beach has been fenced off with some proper posts etc. Undoubtedly in response to recent events, it now provides a very handy long clothes-line for the sunseekers.

Yeah, they put it up last thursday night, quite a surprise to see it there as me and Mrs Wal wandered down the zig-zags on friday morning.
Personally I don't think the boundary is big enough, looking at the large cracks and rock structure plus the rate it's erroding at (I'm no expert by the way) I would have thought they would have made the 'safety zone' somewhat larger.  It might give people protection from smaller lumps of rock dropping off but that large slab on the western side is looking decidedly top heavy and very dodgy IMO; if that collapsed it would squash a few folk outside of the rope Dead.  About 8 years ago I remember noticing the foot holes that had been carved into the eastern side of the pinnacle, they were quite well defined and climable - last week there are barely noticable, so it's erroding quite quickly.
 
Anyway, twas another great week at good ole Albufeira, can't wait now until next year Smile

UK and other viewers switch on jealousy mode. Albufeira beach at 4.20pm yesterday afternoon. I took some other pictures around and about yesterday and these will be on my webspace in the usual place later today.

I'm looking forward to a time when I will not be spending any winters here in Blighty. Hopefully in the not too distant future, plans are afoot!

My favourite beach, Cubsur!

I always enjoy a walk along this stretch of the coast.

Thanks for the pics.

Yes I'm missing it - even with grey skies! Mind you,Tynemouth beach yesterday was much busier with dogs walking their owners and surfers by the dozen who think it's Bondii beach, silly buggers!

Yes, there were a few bodyboarders out there by the pier, half a dozen blokes rather optimistically fishing and even a couple of kids digging in the sand. It was a bit windy though. I didn't stay long, pressing appointment with a bar and a couple of football matches.
