A perfect day to enjoy a lengthy walk along the salt flats, explore a small village (that was new to most), and lunch at a new place O Farol (The Lighthouse), that turned out to be a wonderful find food wise, not to mention a great bargain. We paid 40 € for five of us, including wine.
We drove into Fuzeta and met Pat and Gary on the boardwalk then headed west.
This particular walk is an easy one and you could continue for many many miles…….right to the western end of the Algarve in fact, however our plan had been to walk until the village of Quatrim do Sul then head inland towards the restaurant O Farol, enjoy lunch on the terrace then pick up the path again and head back towards Fuzeta.
O Farol was a hit for most of us. Today there wasn’t a prato da dia, simply a choice of several things. Joanne and I devoured our platter of lulas grelhadas
Pat and Gary also pretty well licked the plate clean from their mista de carnes
Marc had ordered a chicken dish that wasn’t quite what any of us were expecting and consequently, wasn’t in his top 10!!! Thank goodness for olives, great salad, and bread. On the other hand, I was more than excited when the table next to me was served maçãs assadas!!! I was definitely having one. It didn’t disappoint, and yes, I licked the plate.
With satiated bellies, accompanied by a slower pace, we headed back towards the sea and the route to Fuzeta, about a 40 minute stroll. As always, there is something wonderful to capture along the route.
And finally, so happy to see that they are starting to bloom.
That was our day, and a fine day it has been.
