Estoril and CascaisOctober 17 in Portugal
Today we planned a train trip to Estoril. We took the 758 bus to Cais do Sodré then boarded the train to Estoril. On arrival we headed to Hotel Palacio, with whom one of Janet’s clients has a connection. There we met Vera and were introduced to two staff members who appeared in 007 On Her Majesty’s Secret Service with George Lazenby. We had a tour of the hotel and spa and a celebration glass of champagne! A lovely touch.
After we walked along the promenade to Caiscais in the sunshine. We stopped for a sandwich by the lighthouse , spent some time sketching in town, then caught the train back to town.
After a respite tea we caught the 758 back to base. Out to 33 to eat this evening. Food was simply cooked though delicious fish, sea bass and a cod stew with excellent house wine at €3.50 a half litre carafe.Read more
