Activity Algarve Bike Rides

The warm weather has finally returned and we enjoyed two good rides over the weekend. Saturdays ride was quite challenging over towards Santa Caterina da Fonte do Bispo, and then down to Tavira and then back to Moncarapacho.
Sundays ride was gentler towards Messines from Paderne.

Learn the art of Life Drawing in OlhãoEach Thursday morning a small and dedicated group meet to study and draw their responses to the male or female nude. The poses are short so they have to work fast.

Misjudgements are made and sometimes seen and redrawn. Everyone becomes more and more deeply concentrated, and as the poses become longer they have more time to see what's really there, and how endlessly fascinating this tangle of torso, limbs, head, hands and feet will always be to anyone who decides to explore, try to visually make sense of and draw.

Thomas Hartmann as King Charles II with Denise Raines as Queen Catherine of BraganzaBased on the marriage of King Charles II to the Portuguese Princess, Catherine of Braganza, ‘The Rhyming Diary of Mrs Pepys’ is a bawdy restoration comedy.

Following successful sell-out shows of ‘Rags to Riches’ the new play is written entirely in rhyme and features a cast of nine actors. Like her more famous husband - the diarist Samuel Pepys - Mrs Pepys recounts the sexual scandals and religious intrigues of the Royal Court in 17th century London. Based upon factual incidents, as the scenes unfold details of Catherine’s extravagant dowry and Charles’s lascivious appetite and seductive mistresses are revealed.
