We were up and had breakfast, anticipating a call from Maria & Paulo, Fiona's friends from Porto. They were travelling down from Lisbon today and called to say they were just leaving Lisbon. We read and wrote and did puzzles. Later they called to say they had arrived and they came later in the afternoon. We sat and talked for quite a while, catching up on each others' news.
We went for a walk down to the beach and Maria had to put her hand in the sea. It seemed she really liked this area. We walked back up the hill and stopped at a restaurant where we had dinner.
We walked back up to Maria and Paulo's car near our apartment and they left for their hotel and we came home to read and catch up with the photos and journal.
Tomorrow we plan to go with Maria and Paulo to the Carnaval Parade at Loulé.
