Stage 21 | on to Amado, Carrapateira, Algarve

2:45pm, Praia do Amado
19°c, min last night 7°c
Currently overcast, light breeze.

I've not long arrived at Amado, on the south west coast, not far north of Sagres..

I've had lunch and just realised its the first time I've been alone in over a month. It's a lovely relaxing day, so I've picked a spot with a nice view of the hills but door open towards a fence. I'm going to spend the day relaxing, reading and with my dog. So much time with wonderful travelling companions old and new, but it suddenly feels great to be in the peace of my own thoughts on this mild afternoon..

I am not completely alone however. There is the spider that guards the doorway against flies..

..there are tiny snails hitching a ride wherever I go..

The last couple of days have been lovely and sunny, yesterday reaching 22°c and Ricardo & I even went in for a swim and body surfing in the evening whilst Anita played with Rio on the beach. Great days of travellers tales and beachside cooking and socialising.

I'm sure there are many more good times ahead, but for now, rest in the welcome cool breeze..
