After happy moments with friends and family in Holland,
it was time to Make a Move to Shogun in Lisbon.
Super: First Marleen & Loek and later Marijke would join me.
Of course there were the Touristic Things To Do and To See,
like visiting the Tower at Belem...
a fun-tour aboard one of Lisbon's "traditional" Tricycles that took us around town to places we hadn't seen yet.
getting dressed-up for a dinner-show at one of the many Fado restaurants.
...where part of the happening happens on the cosy street as it was warm-warm inside.
Back on board:
We continued enjoying these sunrises, as seen from the pilot house of SHOGUN
She also got loaded-up with parcels full of boat items and spare parts.
But there was more to see than Lisbon only.
A rent-a-car saw us zooming across the bridge
for a trip down south...
Dry-dry & hot country side
Mertola is a pleasant town to visit.
We spent the night in one of the local inns.
The river is almost the border with Spain.
Ocean going shallow draft vessels can navigate all the way up to this town.
Traditional narrow roads, but piece of cake for Kiwi Drivers.
Back in Lisbon.
The area near the marina is famous for modern architecture.
This is the local bus/sub-way station.
Lisbon also has nearby an magnificent bird-watching area.
Helder, a local bird-watching tour guide took us for the day.
Came with knowledge and wheels.
These snails are a delicacy here in Lisbon.
Not only for birds.
Look over-there...aren't those...?
Our stay in Lisbon was coming to an end, but we still had energy to do some more sight-seeing downtown.
Yep it was a Licking Good Lisboa Stay.
