    ... day. The King of Portugal had it built with the intention of it being the finest hotel in Europe but there was a revolution just before it was completed and Portugal became a republic. The bedrooms were completely rebuilt in 2006 but the wonderful public rooms and grand staircase were left untouched. We have a snack lunch and then go to the pool. In the evening we have a lovely dinner in the grand sining room and finish off with a port on the terrace as it is our last night in ...

    ... rest' on the edge of town which was well sheltered with a table and bench and all sorts of other if the day was fine but we ate some brekky dry! Sat and watched the rain fall down while we ate but it was cold - fingers barely working.

    Headed off to Laza where many spent the night and found a cafe and spent 1 1/2 hours there. Three coffees and two cola caos, toastados and cakes and buddy went shopping for dinner tonight as one set of notes said we had a ...

    ... tiny and I mean tiny, as in maybe 5 houses in the village (WA people think Tenderden doubled) and alas at the last village I look up and see that we can see in front of us. We look left over the valley and ever so briefly we could see sun with a quick 'grab the camera' we did capture a couple of photos, but that was all for the day. The fog soon fell down again.
