    Wild Waves

    March 1, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Clouds and rain persisted throughout the week. Today we walked beyond the village and marina to the beach. I have never seen such wave action where the huge waves rolled in to shore one after another, affected by strong winds, high tide and a full moon.

Between us we lost a whopping €5 and by then the rain had stopped so we carried on our way, making it back home just before the next downpour. We walked over 11 km and that final uphill stretch was a challenge, with both of us feeling that we had overdone it today!
