We spent the 15th of April quite differently in the past... traveling, exploring, taking family photos, trying new places to eat. But, as we are grounded to our homes this year, I wanted to reminisce the past few years here.
Crazy thing - April 15th of 2017 was the first time we ever set foot in Alvor. We had been exploring the coast, looking for a place to stay the night, enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the beach in Alvor, and a tasty dinner at Zé Morgadinho. Never would have guessed we would be back on that same beach 3 years later, with two babies in tow, on a lockdown in that same town.
Last day in Paris with my parents. We saw Mona Lisa that morning, enjoyed Rosé in the Jardin des Tuileries, and had a long afternoon walk. Tommy arrived that evening for one last dinner, and the following morning we set out as a family on a month long road trip through Spain, Portugal & France.
We were nearing the end of our first trip as a family of four... Tommy fit a tiny surf session in, we said good bye to Odeciexe, moved on to Sarges for the night - and took in a cloudy sunset at Cabo de São Vicente.
Wonder if 2021 will beat the post storm beach romps we made in 2020... only time will tell. xx
