This is my view from the living room ... it calls to me ... don't pack that suitcase, check those train/plane tickets. Instead ... come walk in the sand, admire my colors, listen to my sounds ... the Song of the Siren. I'm listening, I'm listening! Wait for me!

This morning we said adeus to Skip & Mary Fern ... they're on their way to Lisbon & Madrid. The best part of our journey was being in their company, exploring new sights together, discovering interesting Portugal wines & cuisine, learning to avoid driving in city centers, relaxing, playing Qwixx - a great 2 weeks.

Up On the Roof (sing it ... you know you know the tune!)

When is a lockout not a lockout?

This is some sort of specialty Fire Water made from some tree fruit that looks like a strawberry - the clear one tastes like gasoline and the other one is infused with honey...both an acquired taste. Yes indeed; we tasted!

At noon, Philip lures me to town with the promise of lunch at Don Sabastianos. We had our 1st Lagos meal there and it didn't disappoint today.
Philip had Clay Pot Chicken and I had Cataplana.

Early this week, Mary Fern & I discovered the ease of using public buses. If you're heading to Lagos, there's almost no need for a car. Philip's now a fan. For 1.20 euro; you can ride for an hour - which is a complete circuit of the line. We got off at the center, had lunch, went to the little market, hopped back on the bus and rode the entire route ... out to a fabulous beach and then back to our own fabulous beach - Meia Praia.

So now ... I'm thinking about packing ... sorta ...
