A derelict building on the way into town, lovely river side section. Wonder what events led to its present condition.

The beach late in the afternoon. Surfers were active most days and when the wind was right there were para surfers as well. Unfortunately most of the beach side bars were closed for winter.

Portimao

We spent two weeks in Portimao, relaxing and celebrating Christmas with some of the family who had flown down from the UK. More of a summer resort town it has a beautiful beach.

Here is the marina entrance with the river and fort opposite.

We were assigned a berth next to a N55, U2 Baby, but never met the owners.

Lagos

We stopped off in Lagos for a few days. Migration, a N68 we had met up with in Hamble was here so we called in to say hello.

Nice town, great market on Saturday which enabled us to stock up on fruit and veges for the holiday period.
