Travel With Me Tuesday: More Sintra Portugal

After our lunch and some walk around, we decided it was time to head back to Lisbon. The sky was always changing from sunny to big heavy clouds and we were very close to the unpredictable Atlantic Ocean. We would drive down the coast and try to find the westernmost point of the country and the continent, Cabo da Roca.  Well, we drove and saw one sign but  no real indication to us, the non Portugese speakers, of a road or perhaps just a dirt path.

Instead we stopped at Fortaleza da Guincho for an exquisite tea and coffee. I'm usually too cheap frugal to pay such prices but it was well worth the break and the gorgeous views, even with the clouds and dark dark skies. We never saw as many places as we'd planned for this day but it was an overly ambitious plan we realized. We certainly had a good taste of what Portugal could offer and it left both of us with the desire to return.
