The August Bank Holiday weekend saw The Prince & I off having a lovely time in Portugal soaking up the sun. We booked in for a last minute mystery 5 star weekend & ended up at a golf resort in Cascais. Pronounced Cashcash!!
|Main beach in Cascais|
|View towards Lisbon|
|Cafe where we had our first Portuguese meal & sangria - YUM|
|The Prince at work on a sketch|
|Kid at a candy store - well model toys|
|Old abandoned building - love the tiles|
|Here we are at the Western most edge of Europe!|
|Sintra Castle - odd & grotesque|
|The guards walk - goes all around the Castle edge|
|View from the top of Lisbon|
|Tiles EVERYWHERE!! Love them.|
We came home with a small haul of things we loved - a 300 year old tile, a modern tile with a swallow that reminds us of sitting on the balcony watching the swallows swooping around munching on bugs, and lots of Portuguese cockerels!!
We had a really relaxing time, massages at the resort, a day by the pool, swimming every day, sangria by the jug, a bit of playing tourist & a little shopping. Great food & such lovely people. Perfect!
I could get used to holidaying there :)
