Nazaré

This is a lovely seaside fishing town. We had hoped to see the great waves and some reckless surfing but by the time we arrive, the sea is flat as a pond. Well the waves are ‘only’ about 3 mtrs high. In the first photo on the Flickr album to go with this chapter, you’ll see Frank walking off his frustration, collecting firewood.

We spent a few days here. The local mayor was kind enough to  arrange a practice space for us in the sports centre, so we’ve been dancing an hour or so every day and made use of the hot showers :-)

that's us surfing the wind...

Praia do Norte is a beach just outside Nazaré. I have fallen in love with this beach. I don’t know what it is, but something feels just right about being there, in the wind, falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the pounding waves…

The photos will mainly be about two things: the beach and the extravagant dress code of the local women. Enjoy them on Flickr. By the way, did you know that you can view photos as a slide show on flickr? I’ve only just discovered the button myself: It’s the third symbol in on the right hand side on the top. It’s worth it this time, there are some amazing faces in this town, and the sunsets are spectacular.
