... climbed out of the valley in the direction of Vila Nova de Paiva across a landscape not unlike Dartmoor, but perhaps with more trees and shrubbery, littered with huge rounded boulders. The satnav was suggesting the A24 motorway but we stuck to the excellent 'old' route which pretty much runs parallel, before stopping at Mezio for coffee and cake. Whilst at the counter, an American made himself known (probably spotted the registration plate on the car) and we learned ...
On Thursday morning we were on the road northwards shortly after 8.30am - earlier than planned. Due to the steep driveway out of the Camping Pelinos 77, we had taken Remy up on his offer of a tow out but he had overlooked that he had a hospital appointment later in the day, and was knocking on the door at 7.30am to apologise, so it would need to be sooner rather than later.

Hand peeled prawns in garlic, olive oil and chorizos, traditional Portuguese rolled pork with a local stuffing smothered in onions, pepper, salt and pepper seasonings, large fish kebabs, aubergine & halloumi parcels, cocktails shaken!!! It's all too much holiday fun... Time to travel Monday ...
