August, 2016 - LAGOS, PORTUGAL

We did an overnight passage to Lagos.  Originally we planned to anchor out just after Cape Vincent, but decided to push on to Lagos.  This was not on my list as it is a tourist town and expensive, but gave in to pressure (happy wife/happy life).

Arriving late in the afternoon, we had to stay two nights in order to see the town.  Very nice beach, lots of shopping and restaurants, but touristy and expensive.

We round Cape St Vincent.

Lots of street vendors.  Sandra buys a cork purse.

The public market.


Featuring lots of seafood.

Including Lobzilla.


Clean attractive town.

Great Sangria.

The entrance to the harbor.

Beach on East side of the river goes for miles.



August, 2016 - LISBOA, PORTUGAL - POST 4 OF 4

As you can guess, from the number of posts, we really enjoyed Lisboa. On our final day we visited the Tile Museum.
