Our second day in Portugal was better than the first. We had a bit of a sleep in then headed out looking for a feed. We found a nice bakery so after fresh bread and oj we stepped out to enjoy the sun. With Jac still suffering and the air warm we decided the best way to see the sites was a hop on hop off bus tour. So we grabbed some tickets, found our bus and headed up stairs to enjoy the views of Porto. The city is built on steep hills which gives it a lot of it's uniqueness. The first bus route took us around the city past many old beautiful buildings and out to Gaia. As it made it's way along the beach we decided to jump off to do something I haven't done yet. Jac sat on the sand with camera in hand as I deshoed, rolled up my jeans, and stepped into the Atlantic ocean. I stood there bravely as the waves kept washing in, but eventually it became too painful. So back up the beach to Jac & the warmth of the sand. We sat enjoying the view and taking in the fresh air before heading back to the bus stop. The next one finally came along so we continued our journey along the river and back in to town. Our next stop was the historic quarter where we wandered along the banks of the Rio Douro. We stopped at a cafe for lunch and enjoyed the weather, the view & a spot of people watching. Yep, this is what life is all about. Then we wandered over Ponte Dom Luis I, which is a famous bridge here in Porto. All their bridges are huge as they arc across the river linking Porto to Vila Nova de Gaia. Their height is massive owing to the geography of the place. As part of our ticket we had been given a free tasting at one of the Port producers so headed off in search. Of course Port originated here, hence the name, so it was something that must be tried. We found our producer, had our taste, thanked them very much, & were on our way again. We joined the next bus for our final loop that would take us around the final stretch, looking back over Porto, and then back to the centre and close to home. It was a great day out which enabled us to see the sites of the city without much stress on Jac. With beautiful weather, fresh air and a bit of exercise she is feeling much better. So tomorrow we will say goodbye to Porto as we jump back in the car and head south to Sintra. I would like another day or two here but that doesn't matter. We got to experience a small part of the cities life, and hopefully the next one is just as good, or even better.
