Lagos and Salema

a reflection

sunny 18 °C
View Spain/Portugal 2007 on therook's travel map.

Here is a late entry on Lagos and Salema, Portugal. I finally can upload photos and not pay a fortune to do it! Lagos and Salema were very nice. Salema was extremely relaxing and all there was was the beach! but there were still two tastey restaurants. one with calamari that i miss greaty....

So here was my first stop into Lagos on the way to Salema. The sky was great and the water clear. I didnt know that portugal was one hour behind spain so i showed up for the bus an hour early! oops!

By the way, im going to change my caption style to underneith the photos. so beware. photo, then description.

This is the street where i stayed, a look to the right. I rented a room from a family. It was very nice. but kind of odd because i would walk in from going to the beach or whatever, and they would be having dinner or cooking! and neither of us spoke the otherĀ“s language!

My feet were very happy to be in the sand and not in shoes.

Salema is a fishing town. and the boats come in and out of the water all day, pulled by a tractor.

I walked around salema the next day and went up some random road. Most of the time all i could hear were the birds. And then, I heard this enchanting ringing or chiming, and i realized it was the cows walking with bells tied around their necks in the valley. below. how often does one realize that?

So I had a great time in Salema and had some great calamari and wines and sun. It was like a vacation from the vacation! Very awesome indeed. So, until next time.... I have TONS of pictures from the azores. So beautiful there!
