To the beach!

Spring arrives early in Portugal. While in the Netherlands the papers report a record temperature of 18 degrees (on February 25!), here in Arelho it almost feels like summer with over 20 degrees. And so we went to the beach!

The beach at Foz do Arelho is about a fifteen minute drive from our Quinta dos Pernobes. In the summer it will be very busy there, but now in February it is still nice and quiet on a Monday afternoon. Parking is therefore no problem and we hardly meet people during a walk on the beach. It is pleasantly busy on the terrace of the beach restaurant Cais da Praia, but here too we find a spot and enjoy a drink.

In short: a Portuguese beach day in February!
