We have just arrived at Faro Island from the Faro theatre parking where we spent 3 nights. A few vans here but many more across the causeway at the Airport squat. Weather a bit cloudy and windy today but warm still. Great surf and lots of folk in the sea enyoying it. We were here. 4 years ago and the little shacks that were peoples homes in the sand dunes were being knocked down as they were illegal it seemed. But wandering around today we found that lots had survived and were still being lived in, a new board walk has been installed through the surviving shacks and the whole area now looks great and secure, great news as I would hate to have seen their total demise as it is Portuguese heritage and fishermen's homes, so good news there. New toilet and showers replace the old in the car parking and a relocated cassette emptying facility still all free so another good result for us vanners.
