Your bar looks very fine. I'm not long back from the Algarve, take a trip there most years, in the early spring. Catch the last of the seasons waves and top up my tan, after a cold winter in the UK. Will look you up next time I'm in Sagres. How big was it that day? Looks like it's breaking way out passed the rock.

most likely it's work day... and most wages in portugal aren't that great to allow one to just bail-off work and go surfing... i have heard people at the beach around here saying things like "u-hu! live on the doll, money for petrol and tuna and surf nice beaches all week!" -- check the doll in portugal and you'll understand why no one's at the waves...

Turned up with the misses last June. Drove around asking and found a place to stay very similar for 15 Euros a night.

I'm going there on my honeymoon. Not sure when to tell the wife that there will be epic surf on our doorstep. Oh well, let's hope she takes a good book or two with her...
