We had dinner in a square in the centre of Cascais and watched the Rugby
World Cup Final surrounded by South Africans. All Portuguese restaurants
proudly feature several big TV screens on the walls. For sporting events on
warm evenings they are even propped up outside on the tables. It makes a
night out in Portugal feel a bit like shopping at 'Comet'.
The crew left the boat this morning for a few days shore-leave taking the
train back to Figueira. This is supposedly so Lori can meet up with Hannah
and organize some work on the Pink House although I suspect the real reason
is that the girl is sick of the sight of the skipper!
