Porto Covo and Points North.

Prawns for lunch, with some delicious Portuguese vinho verde, ‘green wine’.
Porto Covo

Porto Covo is a very relaxed fishing village on the Portuguese coast south of Lisbon. I love the way they place stone seats in the middle of the Main Street.

There is a small harbour at Porto Covo.

Another old cove.

There are a load of walkways running along the sandy/rocky coast here.

These flowering succulents were everywhere.

After Covo, we moved up the coast to Foz, and parked about 5 metres back from a sand-rimmed lagoon.

Vinho Verde Country

The weather was turning wet and cold so we beetled up to the Douro valley where we stopped the night at Quinta de Lourosa. This is a vineyard where they brew vinho verde, and sparkling white, rosé and red. We had a mini tasting with the delightful owner and have stashed a few bottles away in the boot.

Fortress at Braganca, a border town close to Spain, where we stopped for lunch en route to Valladolid.
