Cascais, Portugal Sep 2008, Part 2

On the penultimate day of the visit, we took a walk along the coast of Cascais and took in some of the wonderful sights.


This is the entrance to the boca de inferno (mouth of hell) which is basically just a steep cliff leading down to the sea.

Some anglers near the boca. I included this cuz I thought it was one of the rere good quality pics I managed to take, and directly against the sun too.

Some old buildings on the othe side of the coastline... reminds me of Melaka again!

The bay where mostly fishing boats park up in the evening. By night, there would be 5 times as many boats than pictured.

This is the square in the town centre of Cascais.

A selection of food from the buffet..some tomato rice, a white piece of steamed, reconstituted salted cod, baked chicken breast, the thinnest fries ever, and a fried fish cake.

This is grilled baby octopus with baked potatoes, the meal I had on a previous night.

This is barbecue squid with corn on cob. The idea was good, but the restaurant was sparse and I dont think the food was as fresh as it could have been.

And finally, some Portuguese tarts! They were behind a glass cabinet and somehow my camera focused on the screen rather than the tarts!

Dont know when I will ever visit Portugal again, but it was a memorable visit and the food made it even more worthwhile!

I have never been to Portugal, so I have had a very nice time seeing your photos. What a beautiful place you stayed, and what beautiful scenes you photographed. I also love all the seafood you ate. I must add Portugal to my list to visit some day.
