Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone:
We ended up in a new town on Friday, Arrifana. I hadnâ€™t been here at all, but because Charlie was driving practicing his stick shift driving, which was really nice for me. We got a chance to go farther south. This town,Arrifana, is south of Aljezur and back at the coast. Itâ€™s an unbelievable beach with very high cliffs which protect it, but you can get down to the beach. Lots of surfing and body surfing here in this spot. Itâ€™s a really nice setting, makes you want to stay there, except that we noticed that the restaurant prices were about 3 to 4 euros higher than what we have at home in Zambujeira. Rentals here are more expensive as well; this is considered to be the start of the Algarve.Â
We did go to have a look at the beach at Odeceixe that youâ€™ve heard me talk about before, and also we stopped in Aljezur at the restaurant that Irene and Ross and I stopped whatever day that was. Of course Carol & Charlie and I donâ€™t drink, so we had tea in big mugs labelled like beer but Iâ€™m sure they werenâ€™t beer.
When we got back to Zambujeira, we were all really hungry so I took them down to Mr. Beanâ€˜s restaurant. Estrella, Do Mar. Charlie had the octopus and bean stew, Carole had Sea bream and I had Sea bass. It was another incredible day. Back home a few episodes of Ted Lasso, a glass of port, and then off to bed.
Until tomorrow friends.Â
