    Last night on the coast

    April 20 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After that long march yesterday I gave myself a hostel last night 😃
    Got up late, had a nice breakfast and marched off around midday.
    Now in the distance already visible are the huge harbour cranes of Sines which also signal the end of the Rota Vincentina. Shortly before sines I will be heading off inland to join up with the camino historico at Santiago do Cacem. I then won't see the sea till Porto . 🙁
    The wind is so strong at the coast tonight that I have pitched tent behind a port Jackson bush,
    In the Cape South Africa, there is a war being raged against these bushes which are viewed as aliens, grow extremely fast, consume huge quantities of water in a dry region and displace the indigeneous flora. Exactly the same is happening here, and especially in the last 60 kms this has been very evident with them growing everywhere and covering up and killing the flowers.
    So I have mixed feelings about the protection I am getting tonight.

    It's happened! an open restaurant, yea!

    April 21 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    At last an open restaurant, with tables service and all!
    For me the first since October 2020!
    Suddenly something banal becomes really important.
    I have now left the department of Odemira into that of Sines and the restaurants are actually open. I'm going to have an orgy!

    On a different note, this morning I met a wonderful couple from Australia, David Bangma and Amelia Gill. Both lived a while in London, then decided to escape the craziness of COVID to Lisbon, then things got crazy in Lisbon and they moved for three months into this region to have the sea nearby for surfing. David is Graphic designer, Amelia works for and ad-agency and both work totally virtually although they miss the social contact of the normal working world. Apparently life in Australia is totally normal. No lock down, no masks no craziness.
    I am Meeting many people here who have fled Germany, France, or Britain to come an live here near the sea while the World goes crazy. Most are working remote. One Germany Surfer I met is part of a technical call Center for engineering products he takes the calls from the beach. After 17:00 He is on his surf Board. There is a totally new professionell world appearing.

    This morning as I marched, I philosophised about ants. Everywhere I saw endless roads of ants, Perfectly organised straight lines which I followed for tens of meters. Half of them going in one direction, the other half in the other direction. They were not carrying anything, just crawling, sometimes meeting each other for a split second and then moving on. Where were they coming from? Where were they going? What were they doing? And why?

    Beach Malhão

    March 29, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Die Nacht war Top und diesmal konnten wir auch ein wenig ausschlafen.
    Danach packten wir dann unsere Sachen und machten uns auf dem Weg zu ein paar weiteren Stränden. Wir wollten den Tag nochmal nutzen, um uns ein wenig zu sonnen und wir wollten ja noch in den Atlantik!

    Strand Nummer 1 lag nur 15 Minuten von unserer Unterkunft entfernt.
    Dieser war sehr cool, da er sich auf viele kleinere Abschnitten in Buchten aufteilte.
    Wieder waren viele Surfer und dementsprechend auch Camper dort.
    Auf den Klippen konnte man über Stege die einzelnen Treppen etc erreichen.
    Sehr cool gemacht. Zum Sonnen war es aber noch ein wenig kalt..

    Odeceixe a Alentejo

    May 12, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Dalších pár dní u moře, nekonečné pláže, hrozné horko, další namalovaný patník, Ondřej zachraňuje tonoucího plavce (skoro jako pobřežní hlídka, ale s velkým plovákem), klasický večer u hokeje, Ondřej se úplně oserfoval, místní trh s hromadou sýra, slepicema a podprsenkama, v Odeceixe řvou ptáci celou noc.
    Konáme pouť do surfařské vesnice Nazaré známé gigantickýma vlnama, voda jak zrcadlo.
    Nekonečně dlouhé ohořelé pobřeží.
