There are a couple of really beautiful beaches in Leca, and a prime surfing area in Matosinhos a few kilometers south. We walked along this beautiful, uncrowded promenade and watched families bike together, people laying in a strip of grass between the promenade and the sand, and families playing in the sand.
Irene has a favorite beach but we had to get ready for a Habitat party tonight so we had about 2 hours to go to the beach, eat and then go home and get showered and dressed. We found a closer beach/cove to camp out at and all of a sudden I realize Irene has her swimsuit under her clothes!! I am so jealous! I knew we were going to the beach but I didn't realize we were getting in the water! Oh how I would've loved to lay out in my new African bikini!!! so I opted for taking some pictures and marveling at the clear, warm water. The Atlantic is notoriously freezing but there seemed to be a fairly warm current today so I walked around up to my knees in the water - yay!
Had to go unfortunately but what a calm and peaceful place to hang out. Had some lunch at a cafe nearby and went back to get ready for tonight's party!
