Still nothing much happening. Weeds are beginning to take hold, except in the locked up park, which is still being looked after.

Construction work on those isolated villas continues, with a third now going up near the wonky steps. Workmen were spotted in the playpark, resurfacing one of the paths. I wonder it there is any danger of it actually being opened? Most of the rest of the area is still a wasteland.

The pedestrian gate has been open at the playpark for the past week or so. Had a walk round, but have never seen anyone using the children's play area. Maybe most don't know of its existence?

I am not at home at the moment but if the playpark is open, it's about time. With a local population of zero, my guess is that it will not be very busy!

The gates to the playpark do seem to be locked, but someone had found their way in there on Monday afternoon, with their dog.

Meanwhile building the houses nearby continues.

The assorted vast mansions near the marina are slowly taking shape. One of the gates to the little park is open, so it's possible to go down and have a good look. It is being well looked after, but who by and who for?

















One of the gates to the park is locked, but the other is open.



An old cistern, awaiting water.





How water used to be raised up for irrigation.



This preserved well must be 50 feet deep.


But elsewhere is a wasteland, with dark clouds looming! It didn't rain though.

interesting. Thank you.

I spotted one of those new properties in an estate agent window at €1.125 million!

Bob has spotted some new goings on next to that huge tiled area. Something to keep an eye on in the weeks to come.

We walked through yesterday & wondered the same? More square boxes ( I mean villa's) going up ?? It must be something that's going to be a benefit to buyers ..

They have planning permission for something like 300 apartments in several low rise blocks plus shops and other commercial premises. Obviously the apartments will be high end for rental or purchase by tourists, locals will never be able to afford them!

It is to be the location of the Albufeira fortnightly outdoor Tuesday market as from tomorrow! Even as I write, I can see from the window white vans converging on the location.

Information posted by The Cottage at Trip Advisor earlier today and verified with my own two eyes. Kept that quiet, didn't they.

The man at the gate said that the Market had been cancelled today as there were only 70 pitches for 100 stalls. They decided all or none. It would have been very muddy too! 
They are trying to rearrange from 7th Feb if the Camara can level the other half of the plot and put stones down to facilitate all of the stall holders.

I was only able to quickly look down on the site yesterday morning and was wondering why there was suddenly no activity! Thanks for your observation.
