In the port city of Setubul, we find a man with a sailboat who takes us alone for a slow two hour cruise of the local waters. He pours a glasses of the local Muscatel.
This is a casino just South of Sebutal. It can be reached by taking a ferry. The beaches are very nice here, but I think the water is still cold.
Back in the 1970s, I used to pay $200 and hour for repairs and gas to operate my own boat. That would be about $800 in today's dollars. Plus I had to wash and clean the boat after every trip. Today's excursion was relatively dirt cheap.
In the afternoon we move on to Sesimbra on Atlantic Coast. This is our hotel. Right now Mrs. Phred is having a glass or two of wine on the roof. Maybe I'll join her when I finish this blog.
We've been eating a big lunch in a local restaurant every day and then maybe nibbling some bread and cheese or something from a pastellaria in the evening. Sesimbra is very nice with lots of old narrow alleys and dozens of local and also touristic style places to east.
