Cascais to Azoia

We're back from a walking holiday in Portugal arranged (again!) by Inn Travel the walking was in the Sintra with a final day in Lisbon.
We flew to Lisbon got in rather late (around 11pm after the plane was delayed due to a medical problem on the incoming service)so our stop in Cascais was rather brief, we were taxied next morning to the Cabo Raso lighthouse where the host of our next 2 nights left us.
The start of the walkingWe had a pleasant morning walking along Guicho beach and after lunch at a beach cafe (very nice) the only Sangria of the week, we headed inland throughcountryside and hamlets to São Saturnino. This is allegedly a former monastery but had a distinctly spooky atmosphere due to the furnishings. We were driven to a local restaurant in Azoia for evening meal - meeting a couple who were a day ahead of us on the walk. I enjoyed an octopus dish the rest of the party were a little more conservative! A fairly restful first day of the walk.

Most of the photos are uploaded to flickr, a few more to do and I hope to sequence them in a better order. The sequence wasn't helped by my forgetting the camera sd card....
