    Olhao

    October 7, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    We took a trip to the mainland to in the dinghy, with outboard, it was low tide and we saw lots of different birds. Stork, egrets, curlews spoonbills and lots more we couldn't identify. There was a busy market happening when we got there fruit and veg and regional specialities which appear to be bee related honey, honey cake, pollen, as well as pomegranates. Lots of people shopping chatting or having coffee. We wandered around for a bit and then did some shopping ourselves and had some lunchRead more

    Olhao

    October 7, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Today we decided to take the dinghy to town, it was a spring low so all the various mud and sand banks were visible as well as lots of birds, we saw a stork, egrets, spoonbills, curlews and lots of different gulls.
    When we got to town we realised it was market day with lots of extra fruit and veg stools. The local produce seems to focused on bees there was wax, honey, honey cake, pollen and liqueur. Also a lot of pomegranates and woven baskets. After a little shopping and wandering around we decided to stay for lunch before heading back to offload the shopping and to go to the beach.Read more

    Ilha da Culatra near Faro

    October 6, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After 2 relaxing nights in the marina we are anchoring again, the currents here are far less than at Alvor so shouldn't be any dragging. We are in a nature reserve but there are still lots of other boats anchored and moving around the lagoons. Tomorrow we plan to take dinghy to Olhoa. We have just met Canadians who we kept bumping into in Spanish Rias, they have been in the Lagoon for a week and are loving it.Read more
