Friday arrive late to the campsite Vale Paraiso Nazare , it is in a great location 3k walk into town, Lidl close by for groceries and the sea and beach on the doorstep. The campsite has free wifi, a gym (€1.00 per visit) in my head I will go !! Watch this space, a bar, restaurant and all the usual stuff laundry etc. What it doesn’t have Many of is pitches in the sun.
a view from the van on our first night
Saturday it’s a stroll into town, downhill going in and up uphill coming out.
The town is getting ready for New Year’s Eve, there are 2 stages on the beach, a huge car park in the town is filled to capacity with mostly Portuguese motorhomes and cars, the police are cordoning off bits of the town and it’s very busy with people.
Stopped on the way home to buy some traditional Portuguese Christmas fare, pastry, filled with fruit, nuts and citrus peel stuff another hit on the cake front.
After our tea the campsite have thoughtfully set up a dog agility course, Nala has been cheating and going underneath ! Have shown a non cheating pic !
Baby gained a first certificate in agility and Nala was booted out in shame for cheating and is now poohing on the course in protest !!
New Year’s Eve and we decide to be party poopers, plus the dogs don’t like fireworks and most celebrations don’t start till late. Was correct the music started 10.30 p.m and finished 4.00 a.m ish and the fireworks/cannons started midnight for about 20 mins. We had a lager each and watched a couple of gory episodes of Dexter.
