End Of The World Lighthouse

Rocky Coastline

Stoney Beach

It rained a lot in the night & we decided to move on early today to a town called Sagres on the South Western tip of Portugal, known as World's End. It was a short hop of about 60 miles so we were there before midday despite the GPS coordinates given for the camp site being wrong & taking us about 3 miles the wrong side of town. The camp itself is in a pine forest away from the town in a flat scrub covered peninsular.

Doris was unloaded & we went off to have a look at the lighthouse at the remote tip of the land. It was quite dramatic with high cliffs & crashing waves on the rocks below. As expected there were a couple of geocaches there & also a marker board for the starting point of a bicycle trail up through Portugal & on into Spain & France.

The only problem was the rain & wind started again so we stopped off at a remote restaurant which, fortunately, was open. Several couples in there for a late lunch & all appeared to be British. The rain didn't stop so we got wet making the dash the couple of miles back to the site where we watched a video for a while until it cleared up again & we could pop out to the local supermarket for some supplies. Too late to see much of the town as it was getting dark so will have a look in the morning if it is not raining. Now that we are back in the UK time zone it gets dark just after 6pm, I suppose it is light earlier in the mornings but I didn't notice today as it was so overcast with the rain.
