Only Fools and Horses

July 19: Waterfront stroll in Lagos, Algarve. Coffee and car watching. Quick look at fortress and statue of Henry the Navigator. Stopped by the Lagos museum where I enquire about the location of PomarĂ£o, which is in the Alentejo. A Willmett ship built in Padstow, Cornwall used to call there and we will visit later in the week.
Lunch at the Meu Limao - prawns in garlic and mixed salad; vegetarian menu, three courses for 6 euros.
A tour of the marina with trip boats setting out. We wait for the pedestrian lift bridge to close. Watching Alberto Contador win the stage in the Tour de France on TV. Siesta.
Evening supper at the Portal do Infante. Good food, iffy service. Stop at The Vu Cafe for ice cream afters. We are moving on tomorrow but would be glad to return to the western Algarve.
