LisbonSeptember 26, 2017 in Portugal
So after another foggy trip yesterday we eventually made it into the marina 9hours after leaving. The first 6.5hours were foggy, the next 1hour windy, the remaining 1.5 OK. The fog cleared just after we turned east having cleared the western most point of Europe in thick fog, and we could see the north bank of the Tagus estuary. We were then able to turn off the radar and cruise our way up the river, with tidal assistance. The port is very commercial and Lisbon is huge. Today we have been tourists wandering around seeing as much as we can.
