Portugal Part III

Sand sculptures in the old town of Albufeira...

On Monday we made our way to the marina in Albufeira where we boarded a sailing boat that took us to the beautiful beach at Benagil. The boat moored just off shore and we were taken, in a speed boat, through the gorgeous caves before turning back to the beach where tour staff prepared a divine beach BBQ for us...fresh sardines, salad, bread, melon and a selection of wines! We had a job keeping Coby calm in the speed boat, but he seemed to like wearing his life jacket and made friends with five year old Dylan and seven year old Kara. The boat trip to Benagil took about an hour with spectacular views of the Algarve coastline, we even passed Cliff Richard's house, Adega do Cantor in Guia.
