Steve is feeling slightly better although he is starving – he has only eaten a couple of plates of ice cream in the past three days.
We decided to venture to Quarteira which is the next settlement along from Vale do Lobo. It has a really long beach promenade which we strolled along.
The area of Quarteira dates back to Roman times where it’s charter was granted back in 1297. It has evolved from a simple fishing village into one of the major tourist centres in the Algarve.
The beach was lovely & there were lots of little eating places along the promenade. Lots of pizza & pasta restaurants. There are also a lot of seafood dishes on the menus given they form a lot of the traditional Portuguese dishes. Sardines are a traditional Portuguese dish.
We stopped off & ordered a frango (chicken) pizza which Steve managed to eat bar the crust. Hopefully the start of his recovery.
They had espresso coffee on the menu & soy milk so I ordered a soy latte. Not bad.
Nice to be out & about again. Might pop down to the beach for the rest of the afternoon now : )
