Solo in Olhao – Day 1
12:15 – I’m chilling out. Spent a shit load of cash already and it’s not even lunchtime on day 1. After a shopping spree and a coffee in the fabulous town, I’m now sat on my balcony, listening to Black Acid Soul by Lady Blackbird, and its perfect for the moment.
Blue sky, 20 degree heat, it’s about time I went down to the pool, to add some dazzling white slightly paunchy skin glamour to the mix of people.
The trip to the pool was interesting. I sunscreened up, listened to some chilled tunes, read some of Dave Grohl’s excellent book The Storyteller (when I wasn’t wiping sun screen out of my eyes that is). And at the point of going in the water, the seagulls arrived and took over. So I went for a club sandwich late lunch washed down with Coke Zero and a coffee.
Going on a boat trip tomorrow.

I am not a fan of Autumn. For me it’s the start of a personal darkness that reaches pitch black by the time of my birthday on 3rd November. These days I just don’t see […]
These days I don’t do conventional socialising very well. And yet I still force myself into the space that looks at me with suspicion when I say I don’t drink alcohol anymore. The drinkers, the […]
