One of our last days in Portugal and what a fantastic day its been, where shall i start.
This morning saw us driving to Figueria da Foz to the salt museum, very interesting :) they showed us the process of harvesting salt from the sea back breaking work and a long process, we even tried chocolate with salt - delicious. Onwards to the beach, very breezy but sunny, you will have to ask Julie and Lauren about the water temperature :) Next we went into town where there was a display of fire engines from years ago to the present date - lots of pictures to follow :)
A short bus drive up the hill to an amazing view point overlooking the Atlantic Ocean - wow is all i can say.
Next to McDonalds for a quick lunch, the onwards once again to a fantastic castle ruin, surrounded by paddy fields yes paddy fields i learned something new, i had no idea that they grew rice in Portugal let alone in such vast quantities. Our day was finished of with an amazing local dessert, a flakey type pastry filled with an egg custard type filling.
It has been a day filled with fun and laughter - students have been a delight not only today but also over the last two weeks. A special Thank You to everyone from APCC who made today so amazing.
