Day 3 took us from Praia do Malhão down to Sagres, the south-western corner of Portugal and the end of our trip. We meandered along, stopping for a while in Vila Nova de Milfontes, Zambujeira do Mar and Carrapateira and while on the last stretch of road before reaching our campsite we saw a cute sign for a little village called Aldeia da Pedralva… so we decided to take a detour. A detour that turned into a caipirinha and then another… and then dinner… and then another few caipirinhas… and then we started to imagine what we would do if the campsite was closed by the time we finally arrived. I was full of ideas of pitching the tent behind a tree in the middle of nowhere, but Tara has always been the more sensible one, even after a few drinks and firmly vetoed my plans, so we pushed on and finally arrived in Sagres, relieved to see that they stay open until 11:30pm.
Quite by coincidence and without either of us realising it beforehand, a friend and fellow blogger Claudia, from A Place For Twiggs also travelled this coastline the same week as us… and also ended up eating in the same restaurant in Pedralva! Great minds think alike, as they say… you can see her blog post here.
