Summer is finally here, the kids are off school for three months, and I will probably go a little insane. As Tavira celebrated Saint John's day in June, I took a stroll around the town, to admire the beautifully decorated streets, and whilst on my travels, visited a couple of places that I hadn't seen before, out of curiosity. We feature a fresh summer dish from Museu do Vinho, meet up with Ana, owner and chef, from Ana's restaurant in Moncarapacho, and find out more about Dr. Ken Hamilton's Chiropractic procedures. We bring you the usual, helpful gardening advice from Mark O'Shaughnessy, how to keep safe in the sun from Gareth Bullock, Elizabeth's book review, and all the sporting news from Chris Wright. I hope you find time to visit Tavira this month.
As you will see in the What's on Guide, there is plenty to see, and do. Have a relaxing, sun soaked July.
