spent the day at tonel beach, well the afternoon any way, not much in the way of surf but at least something to ride.
glorious sun all afternoon and water so warm that an hour and a half in the water in just shorts was fine, didnt get cold once.
Last night we hit lagos. first place we tried was a place called the red eye bar – typical scum dive as you might guess. lots of pissed aussies and english tarts looking for a fluid exchange – we left there very quickly.
next stop was a typical portuguese place, the bouncers look you up and down to see if you will fit in, they only let good people in, no tourists. place was amazing and local too. local music and a local attitude to partying.
i left alex there at 3am when i was so tired. i didnt really sleep at the beach on friday night so i needed to catch up. tonight alex is going to a beach party at Alvor, along the south coast with two of marilias friends , Luis and Xana.
enough for now
so last night we hit Zavial beach at midnight with the beach tent and surfboards. spent the night under the stars , me , alex and james, 8 bottles of sagres bohemia and a bottle of black label.
what a cool night, i cant believe that i hadnt done this before. the stars were amazing, no light polution from towns or anything so the sky was full. the moon was three quarter which meant the beach was well lit.
we left at 7.30 am and headed west for a surf at cordoama before returning to sagres for breakfast on the square at Barbugem.
then, this afternoon we got bored with surfing so took the air bed to tonel. me and alex paddled it out amongst all the other surfers who couldnt really believe what they were seeing. we finally managed to catch a couple of good ones before getting seriously dumped on the shore break.
Also met with Theresa, a rather sweet spanish chick that works in the bubble – seems i am now learning spanish and portuguese!
tonight we hit Lagos for a night out with the tourists – more tomorrow.
at what had to be the most expensive beach bar i have ever been to, it was his choice though.
tonight we are heading with the beach tent to a local beach and will stay the night there. we hoped for some surf so that we can have a surf at sunset and again at dawn but the conditions just wont make it happen. still gonna have th enight on the beach with a few beers and a beach tent, looking at the starts and talking completely irrelevant shit.
saturday night will head to Lagos for a big night out with all the tourists
