Gina’s name day!
After a leisurely morning, during which we purchased a beautiful parasol for Iestyn’s lobsterised body, we went to our now favourite Praia do Malhão to spend most of my name day.
We had great fun in the water, waves ad all, but we were a little bit careless about the tide coming in swiftly through the day, until one huge unexpected wave just swept over us and our stuff. Oh no! I was just munching on my nutella specifically bought for my name day, and now the jar was full of salty water and sand.
Our other stuff was also wet and sandy, including my book. We took it as a sign that we’ve had enough fun for the day, picked our stuff and headed out of town, to Porto Côvo. We camped nicely in the town, rinsed out and hanged our wet stuffs and headed for a nice name day dinner in restaurant Marques. Iestyn had a mushroom stuffing dish and I had a bowl full of delicious mussels cooked in wine with garlic and coriander. We shared a chocolate mousse for dessert.
