      Blessing the fishing boats and the crew.

      We are enjoying the sun.

      We have parked in a secure site with electricity €4 per night, which is fantastic value.

      We decided to stay on until Monday when the township are having a religious ceremony to bless the fishing boats, followed by local dancing. This got the whole community out and a procession of clergy and followers walked from the church to the port. We joined in too. The people are so religious ...

      ... Puts some of NZ construction to shame.
      Purchased a hat, looks a bit pommy but different. Cork is all the rage here. I decided against cork. This is straw??They are trying to reinvent demand for cork as the wine industry moves to screw caps. Not that we noticed here.

      On top of Algarve

      This is Monchique. 820m above the plains of the Algrave.
      Our GPS took us up a single lane intrepid local road. A bit scary at times. Should have known better and stay on the beaten track. We got there unscathed and meeting the only vehicle on the road at a very convenient point. Otherwise we might have uncorked a cork tree. It was a bit like a James Bond drive but in a campervan, no guns involved. Phew.. Great view.

      ... about 1/5 price in NZ. Looks nice too. We find it cheaper to get new SIM cards than extend our MEO phone contract. Euro 10 for 10 GB. Too hard for me to figure out. Perhaps tourists don't spend more than a month here our they find WIFI easy. Any way it is a great deal, like most things here. ...

      French to the rescue - LPG restored

      This morning at Aljezur we were all packed ready to go. We had run out of propane in one tank and only several days in the other. The problem is that we have French and Irish LPG bottles/ fittings and the Portuguese and Spanish are different.

      I tried my luck. I joined a group of 5 Frenchmen enjoying the sun. I said "bon jour", then explained in English my problem and asked whether any of them had resolved this ...
