Part of the castle support going right down into the ocean.
After that, we drove around the city for a bit. And what would a drive in this city be without getting lost down the tiny, one-way streets?? It just wouldn't feel right! Of course, my husband insists that he was never lost, not even for a second. Ohhhkay!! I don't' think I could ever get tired of seeing/sharing these shots though... tiny, old cobble-stone paved, one-way streets.
Check out just how narrow those streets are!
We stopped at a grocery store and bought some "Massa Sovada" (Portuguese Sweetbread) rolls, and some sliced local cheese and ham and made sandwiches. We drove to a little park with an ocean view and had our lunch. I didn't take any pics of the actual food, but I am smitten with Massa Sovada and will surely have a few posts about that in the future!
Below is the view we had as we ate our lunch. Yesterday was a beautiful day; bright and sunny! Almost too bright, as we were sitting in this little park wishing for some shade. But I understand it rains very often in the fall and winter here, so I am appreciating any sun we do get!
