Wilting Canadians!!

Another total scorcher of a day!!!   And what do we do first thing in the morning………hike to the top of Cerro de São Miguel.  It was on our list of things we really wanted to repeat before heading home and so now we can feel a sense of accomplishment knowing we have done it.  Who cares if we are dehydrated and worn out!!!!!!

We had started this trek early morning, before it was overwhelmingly hot and once done we decided to head on towards São Bras de Alportel to explore part of the old town and eventually decide on lunch.  Turned out to be a lovely idea as São Bras was very quiet, felt as if we had it all to ourselves.

Given it was getting later in the day by now, and our appetite was starting to make itself known,  I had a thought.  We are close to São Romão where we had a great lunch with Pat and Gary in March…..why not try to find it?   And we did……and we were not disappointed……

By the time we returned to the farm it was roughly 16h00 and although we enjoyed a tiny breeze in the mountains, it was non-existent here by the pool.  The cool water however felt wonderful to the tired bones and brought the body temperature down considerably.  All in all, we think, a marvelous day.
