A month of non-stop internet searching and daily in-person house viewings has paid off. We’ve made our selection; a beautiful bungalow with a lovely sea view. Ironically, it was the second house we viewed in Portugal. We narrowed our search to the Portuguese Algarve, following extensive research and house hunting in Spain, Southern France, and Vancouver Island. We viewed more than 30 houses in various communities in the Algarve, learning that we wanted to settle in Carvoeiro. Our offer has been accepted, and details are being prepared by lawyers. Visit here for a sneak peek at our house.
Soon Big Sky will be gently lifted onto the hard for polishing and then put on the market for sale.
July, Con and I return to enjoy our family in North America.
