Can you see what I see in the photo? A wooden leg! What? Yes! One of the birds has a wooden leg! Okay, so maybe it's not a wooden leg, but it has a stump and makes a footprint and a hole. It still ran faster than me so I couldn’t get you a solitary photo, but the group is beautiful too.
This former fishing town, now tourist mecca, has become our first stop in Portugal. We discovered it last year through Anja nd Micha ( www.reisenundspeisen.com ) and we luv it. We avoided it originally ‘cos we don’t like tourists. Yes, sigh, I am aware that we too are tourists, but that is clearly different, duh.
The Guadiana River separates Extremadura and Andalucia (Spain) from Alentejo and Algarve (Portugal) and is a favourite area of ours. We stay on the Portuguese side right on the river banks and we go for hikes in the mountains and drinks in the local bar – what could be better?
