28 October

It seems as though this might be the end of summer, we have weather coming in from the Atlantic bringing lots of rain for the next 3 days.  Fortunately yesterday we managed to have a trip to the far eastern frontier of Portugal, very different from our neck of the woods. 

Marv√£o an amazing hilltop walled town in the Alentejo.  The sun was hot and we even saw a Black Vulture soaring overhead in the clear blue sky.

Mid October swim

 We did get in the sea - for a few moments.  The sun was warm but the water was perishing.
