After a few days of rest and relaxation by the pool or at the beach I'm ready to start working again and to get back to my regular posting!
I've read quite a few books and those reviews I'll post soon but I also devoted some of my time to new projects, to visit some really nice places and taste some really good food!
Our "headquarters" during this week was in Vila Nova de Milfontes were we stayed at Duna Parque. It was nice and cozy and they have enough extras to keep you occupied if you want to stay in the facilities (I was partial to the indoor swimming pool).
Luckily the weather was very good and we not only enjoyed the beach in Milfontes but also in Porto Covo and Zambujeira do Mar.
I took quite a few pictures and I'm trying to organise them with Picasa, since it's my first attempt you'll have to bear with me if they don't show up.

I'm in love with the typical houses of Alentejo

Our favorite restaurant was the small and traditional Tasca do Celso, here's the original menu
and I ate Açorda de Marisco, it consists basically of bread and schrimps and it's really good!
I'll be posting pictures of Porto Covo and Zambujeira do Mar in the next few days... those were the best beaches around...
