Tuesday, 26 July 2016 – Day 41 – Cascais 

Today was another beautiful hot sunny day.  Terri and Mark came and picked me up and we went to Praia da Poca, a lovely safe beach.  We hired a spot and was very relaxing lying under the umbrella and having several dips in the water.

After a long and enjoyable stop at the beach, we decided we had better go and have lunch.

We drove to the Paladar Da Guia restaurant and had a lovely meal sitting outside and taking in the view of the Atlantic Ocean.

After more relaxing at the restaurant, we took ChaCha, Buck and Onslow – the kids of Terri and Mark – home, did some sorting out of tickets and timetables and then went to the Faiartil-Feira de Artesanato. 

This was the 53rd edition of FIARTIL, the oldest Craft Fair in Portugal, is back in Estoril from 23 June to 4 September. The Fair is very family orientated. Many stalls with handicrafts and there was a new area dedicated exclusively to Fashion and Accessories made in Portugal. The highlight of the evening was when several performers were dressed in their national costumes and danced. A huge crowd gathered around to watch  – even little ones were performing with their parents.

It was that time again – eating and drinking!  We had our meal in one of the refurbished dining spaces. After seeing and hearing all that we wanted to, we then went home.

Once more was a full day and very enjoyable.
