In Porto do Espasante
Post by Wynette: We had an amazing hotel in Porto de Espasante where we stayed two nights. Pilar was our host. We decided to take a taxi to the train station our last morning (April 29) so we’d have time to eat Pilar’s wonderful 9:00 breakfast and have time to catch our 9:45 train. We thought there was a cheap local taxi and we asked her about arranging a pick up. She thought for a moment and then said “The train station is only 5 minutes away and a taxi would cost too much because the taxista has to come from another town. I’ll take you.” We said, “What about your other guests who might come down for breakfast then?” and she said, “No problem, and there probably won’t be any.” So, she took us. We showed up for breakfast a little early so were able to leave the hotel around 9:20. In her car, she asked us if we’d seen a place at the other end of the small peninsula. We had not. She said she’d show us since we had plenty of time to make the train. So off we went. It was clear she was very proud of her hometown. (Rightly so.) As we did the short circle drive around the peninsula, she pointed out the three beautiful beaches, the expanse of ocean, other sites.
Pretty good detail for a reflection.
