Portugal Day 5 in Pictures

Day 5 found us with sun in Lisbon and the surrounding areas! While I love the photos I took in the rain and the rain doesn’t bother me at all, it was nice to be able to spend as much time as we wanted to exploring outside. We walked the entire wall of the Castle Óbidos, which took quite some time but afforded a gorgeous panoramic view of the Castle. In the afternoon we went to Batalha to see the Monastery.  In the evening we went to a beer garden type place for dinner, wandered around downtown Lisbon a bit, and tried to head to bed just a touch earlier, but didn’t succeed!  Enjoy the photos.

Another view of the Castle.

Very old windmill. We saw new windmills all over as well. Did you know Portugal gets about 50% of its electricity from windmills, dams, and solar energy?

A fish translated as from Dorado as "Golden Bream." Prepared traditionally, just grilled with sea salt. Is Bream right? I don't know what that is.

  1. Awesome pics – I know you had the BEST time. Sorry about the lost luggage but at least it happened when you were coming home and not going to Portugal.
