Home away from home!

... very cold...freezing in fact! We suddenly realised we had left the Med behind at Tarifa and this was the Atlantic, not known for its warm welcome! But it was so hot in the sun, so we went for it anyway. Colder, by far, than New Zealand waters on a wintry day....or am I just getting a little soft? After a while, it was more comfortable and we had a ball surfing the's been too long since we were in the sea! We didn't go out too far as ...

Now it's time for some natural wonders, we steer a course for the coast, about 6 km away on windy and windy mountain roads. This ain't Grampa's Algarve! Sweeping vistas, crashing ...

Heading West

A travel blog entry by drudell


... including the A22 Toll Road (think 407) close by - talk about a contrast! We climbed back down and hit the road again and arrived at our new home outside Aljezur in the late afternoon. On a hill near a creek with goats pasturing past it is a big house with a pool. Like all our lodgings, as a result of the weather we've been having it is cool, so I get a fire started and we settle down to a dinner at home and a good night's rest. Exploring will begin ...
