Stage 10 | to coast near Ovar Air Base

Every so often you come upon the perfect wild camping location...



On the coast near Ovar
8:45pm, Saturday 19th November
Currently 12°c, high today 18°c
Sunny spells, showers later


The pictures can do the talking..
We are in the woods, having driven south beyond the city of Porto, then back out towards the coast. About 50km covered today. The last section off road on sandy tracks to our clearing among the pines..


Driving through the forest..


Today's camp, looking back from where the earth falls away..


The endless coast looking south in this picture. (Photo of the camp was taken from this spot.)

We explored the forest tracks in 4WD this afternoon, up and down some steep inclines in soft sand. A lot of fun driving. This evening cooking dinner outside with the rain showers drumming on the vehicles awnings. Now in the dark, not silence but the power of the Atlantic in all its boiling intensity.

Thanks for following along!

There'll be regular updates as this journey continues..

Boa noite!
