Timber tipis and clay clad walls

... 24hours. But in this short time we have showered away the sea salt and sand, swam in the lake and have eaten handsomely. We'll need to collate all the recipes we have learnt for cooking courgettes! After a beautiful dinner of cubed courgette, fine chopped cashew and parsley on pasta we were presented with a breakfast loaf and pot of jam. Sweet, seeded and slightly green. Gooseberry we figured, but no. Courgette with a dash of orange juice! We have started constructing ...

The beaches here are already pretty packed, even tough the water is still seriously freezing. It didn't stop us this time ...

Today we reached the end of Europe, to be precise the southwestermost point on the continent mainland, the Cape of Saint Vincent :). A barren place with tall cliffs directly above the sea, the only human landmark being a lighthouse, a few trucks/shops selling wool pullovers and bratwurst(!), and fishermen fishing fish from the top of the cliff(!!).
