    Lagos

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal

    Got up a bit later than planned but still made it to breakfast buffet by 9am. Man, did they have a spread! Hams and cheeses and breads and pastries of all kinds, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, baked beans, yogurts, and on and on. Puts continental breakfast of American chains to shame.

    After breakfast hiked down to Ponta da Piedade with some incredible rock/cove formations. You can take boat rides around to the various coves. Hiked back to the hotel and then hiked about 1/2 mile into town to explore the old town of Lagos. Neat looking little town on the beach but definitely overrun with tourists. Heard a few Americans, some Brits and a lot of Germans. Did some shopping and for a change up, ate at an Indian restaurant in town which was quite good (as most Indian restaurants are). The owner lured us in off the sidewalk (didn't take much luring).Read more

    Sagres

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal

    After lunch, hiked back to the hotel, jumped into the car and headed for Sagres (to the west) where Henry the Navigator had a school some 500 years ago to teach people how to navigate the seas. We bypassed the museum and headed out another 10 miles to a windy little road that took us down to another beautiful beach area which was a surfer's meca. Roamed the beach , took pictures, watched the surfers (waves were not great at this moment) and then headed back towards SaleemaRead more

    Saleema

    April 24, 2017 in Portugal

    Janet had a friend who had been to Saleema, so we took the side road into this little beach town. Pretty beach, surrounded by tall hills. We walked on the beach some and then Yelped it again to find a good restaurant. Found an excellent one, run by a great guy. Sat right on the beach, beautiful early evening. Ate grilled Golden Breem, potatoes, veggies, two glasses of wine, and the standard couvert of olives,bread, and pates. Afterwards, the owner gave us two small glasses of port to warm our innards before we left - yum. Afterwards, it was starting to get cold, so we headed back to Lagos - saw a sign on the at for McDonald's and after lots of twists and turns, actually made it to McDonalds where we confused the kid for sure trying to explain what kind of coffee we wanted - as in damn big coffee!! LOL - none of those thimble shots for this boy! :).

    Oh, did I mention that we stopped at a little convenience store after dinner and bought a bottle of port and vinho verde? Didn't want to take a chance on drying out on this vacation!

    Lagos

    June 24, 2015 in Portugal

    Sun and sand - the kind that's big enough that it doesn't get everywhere and doesn't make the water murky. Hot but with a nice sea breeze. White-washed buildings with red roofs, showing off their Arabic influence. Fresh fish, great wine, and delicious Portuguese pastries. And amazingly, it's quite inexpensive.
