    Drive By Location. (Sao Martinho)

    November 16, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    This morning we headed for the aire at Alcobaca in leiria, on the edge of town with all the services plus free shower block and electric. Not a space was to be had, it was packed with full timers and a couple if the vans must have had 12-15 kids running around. Not really our type of place so we put another destination into the sat nav. Only 40 minutes away but half hour into the drive we came through Sao Martinho do Porto a stunning small town overlooking a large bay with miles if golden sand. Just on the edge of town is a little parking spot so we have decided to camp down here for the night. This is what travelling is all about, finding little gems like this.Read more

    Salir do Porto

    November 16, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    After a very peaceful evening,watching the sun set over the hills and the reflection of the town shimmering off the sea, this morning we headed 2 minutes along the coast to a place found on the app park4night. A cross between an aire and a motorhome park. Today is a bit of an admin day, cleaning the inside of the van, a bit of doby and some time to just do nothing before deciding on our next location.
    This afternoon has a bit of a downturn. The day started bright enough but by lunch we had a few showers. All was well as it was still warm and I was sat out side under the awning reading until the wind changed direction during one light shower and started to blow the rain under the awning. In I went to continue reading as a really strong gust snapped the legs and fixing mounts and collapsed the wind out awning. #*@*. Luckily the canopy still retracts and we were able to stow it safely, but that's going to cost!
    Rest of the day was spent doing not much except watch the weather deteriorate. Oh well there's always tomorrow.
