The Moors invaded and occupied The fortified river crossing we know as Tavira twice, once in the 8th Century AD until the 13 AD and left an idelable mark on the town then again between 27th March to the 2nd April in the year 2017, yet again leaving an idelable mark on the old town as they brought with them the wrecking ball Ashley Moore !

A room with a view across Tavira and its river.

so as they departed deals were struck, mainly around catching up again in England for some drink and food at the bar called Simons, where a hand picked cask conditioned brew is being prepared for our arrival, it was great to see family and friends on our travels and as you can see we had a cracking week. Tavira once again seeing off the Moore’s as the pink armed wreaking ball sheepishly boards his flying machine.

So we off northward to Lisbon !

  1. Good to see you all had a good time. Nice when family come out to see what the fuss is about for themselves! Nice Rugby T shirt mate, very similar to one I recommended a while back to a chum of mine🤔

  2. Will definitely return! My lovely cousin, Princess Christine, and her minion Keith looked after us so well and walked our legs off. Best bits were all the ducks we saw!
