Thanks peedee, we passed fairly close to that today. We left Nazaré which we really enjoyed, especially their outdoor museum with the boats on the sand and the fish drying the old-fashioned way on large frames the size of a bed, tilted towards the sun. Old women in traditional costume were selling the dried fish.
We were looking for somewhere to do a wash and headed for the campsite in Vila Franca da Xira - only to find it had no washing machines! We weren't at all impressed by the site - it was tiered with very little room to drive round, there were a number of really scruffy looking vans and tents; tho we got a great reception and the facilities were clean. It was also high up with little possibility of my sister being able to investigate.
So we moved on, to Fonte da Telha - parking right above a fabulous beach, eating places right next door and we've thoroughly enjoyed watching all that's going on along the beach.
