Under the Alentejo Sun

We spent the past few days in Melides where we had rented a little house. It was absolutely gorgeous there and we spent lots of time on the beach. I thought I'd share some pictures... Melides

This was the view from the balcony off of our bedroom. I woke up to this every morning which was so very taxing.

Sunset on the Atlantic

We spent one evening at the beach and watched the sunset. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Vikki and Luisa at Sunset

I love this picture. Can anyone photoshop me into a different jacket? I didn't bring a jacket to Portugal with me and I had to borrow this little gem from Luisa's father.

Toe Owie

This, my friends, is why I believe in wearing shoes and socks. Shoes are like little helmets for your feet. This owie occurred after a particularly rough game of football on the beach. It was Raquel's fault.

So, now we are back at Luisa's father's house in the north. We'll be here for the weekend and then we head back to Lisbon for our last couple of days. I can't believe how quickly the time has passed.
