Day 260 – Friday 23rd November 2018
A beautiful sunny morning and after lunch we went for a spin on Zippy. First stop Burgau for a stroll about the town.
All in all a beautiful day 🙂
Day 261 – Saturday 24th November 2018
Sunny morning, believe they have snow & floods at home!
Time for week 4 of my Couch to 5k. It was quite a step up this week but it was no real problem; added a minute to the final run.
He’s getting super relaxed about the passing traffic and people…
Spent the afternoon planning the route back to Antibes. I want to take in as many 4 & 5 star sites along the Spanish coast so we can decide where to spend next winter.
Day 262 – Sunday 25th November 2018
Bright start to the day but it soon turned dull and cold.
The rain arrived in the afternoon and I finished the plans for Spanish leg of our journey back to the French Riviera . Given Theresa May’s calamitous negotiations I’m planning for no deal Brexit so we’ll be safely parked up in Antibes for the 29th March while any dust settles.
It strikes me the only way Theresa May could be more unpopular is if she came out as a vegan!
Day 263 – Monday 26th November 2018
Sunny start to the day. Went for a walk along the coast from Luz to Burgau. A bit rocky but a pleasant walk nevertheless.
It’s only an hour and a half stroll but in the sunshine it was thirsty work
Day 264 – Tuesday 27th November 2018
Beautiful sunny day. Did my Couch to 5k first thing. Absolutely no problem and added a couple of minutes to the last run with a 20 second sprint at the end. Those After Eight mints are really working their magic!
We set off on Zippy west along the coast. First stop the fort at Sagres.
Nowadays the promontory is a tourist attraction
There are blow holes coming up from the caves below where you can hear the waves rush in and feel the draft as the air is forced upwards. Doesn’t sound too exciting but it made me smile.
After lunch we set off for Cabo de São Vicente, the south westernmost point of Portugal and of mainland Europe.
There was a surfing beach along the way.
When we got home, back to the van, Cfor was waiting to get out, I opened the door and he barrelled down the steps; places to go, people to see!
Day 265 – Wednesday 28th November 2018
After lunch we motored into Lagos
Day 266 – Thursday 29th November 2018
A cloudy and chilly day. Spent the day reading and watching Making a Murderer.
Today’s petanque match was a bit of a disaster 🙁
