And I came back bearing pictures...just like I promised!
We attend a Fundamentals of the Faith conference in southern Portugal. It was quite a journey for us since we live in the extreme northern part of the country, but well worth it. The fellowship alone with other missionaries was so encouraging. We were in church most of the time we were there, but I managed to squeeze in a few hours of sightseeing and of course picture taking for you guys!
I was so excited about the 6 hour drive down to Albufeira. I just new I'd see some beautiful sights along the way. Well, I was surprised to see the bottom almost third of the country was basically desert.
For several hours, this was our landscape. I was beginning to doubt that we'd ever arrive in The Algarve. One of the greatest tourist spots in western Europe.
But, finally we did....and what a sight it was!!
Before church one evening we strolled through the old streets in the center of town, lined with cafes and little shops selling souvenirs. The road was called Liberty Avenue.
Yes, I made my kids stand on the edge of a cliff to get this picture.
The Algarve is a popular tourist attraction for the British. This restaurant served breakfast for everyone!
Sand sculptures. Looks like this man's about to ax his wife.
Guess that's supposed to be Jagger....
We even pulled up next to the General Lee. Who would have thought...in Albufeira, Portugal!?
We were very thankful to be invited to attend the conference. I met some great folks!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
Stay tuned for the unveiling of the upcoming Blog Party! It involves lots of items from several different continents.....details are coming soon!
