A mixed starter of tasty morsels to please all at the table!
Taken with a glass of Port!
The starter was followed by sardines for our BBF!
The tiles on the walls of the restaurant made us feel as if we were eating in a toilet!
We now sat and watched Alan’s smalls going round and round for an hour! When we complained he threatened to put us in a washing machine too, as he thought we were looking a bit grubby now! So we kept quiet!
When he got the laundry out of the dryer there were two additional items! They were quite small, but didn’t fit any of us so we left them there!
The marked Way goes through this old Gate and on down the hill.
Having satisfied ourselves we knew the Way we went to one of the many bars along the Douro and sat to write postcards and drink Port.
The other side of the river was adorned with famous names of producers of port and sherry!
We returned to our hotel for a siesta. Then Alan sorted out all our things ready for an early start in the morning. He had no idea at the moment where we will end up, but says we must be mentally prepared for a long days walk! Buen Camino
