#ohporto part 2

Our second day we spent at the Atlantic. We took the tram to Matosinhos Sul, which is where the cruise ship terminal is. Amazing how close the ocean is to the town centre but hidden from sight behind the bends of the Douro.

First we visited the Cheese Castle and then walked along the shore until it was time for refreshments which we took at the Praia Homem do Leme. The kitchen wasn`t open yet for another 30 minutes so twist my arm we had to sit in the shade with cold drinks watching the waves.

Lunch was a delicious chicken salad with lettuce, carrots and oranges. In order not to be too virtuos we had some fries with it.

At the Forte de Sao Joao da Foz we visited the lighthouse and had a celebratory icecream before boarding a bus back into the town.

I find the Portuguese seagulls have better manners than their Cornish cousins.
