two dogs

The day started with dogs and bagels, and then we were off to the beach. Family joined us a bit later.

We spent the whole day there, enjoying the beautiful weather and calm waters. We played with rackets, tried Stand Up Paddle, and built sand castles (now called Paw Patrol headquarters).

A break for beer and food at lunch time, at the beach club, more beaching, and dinner at the restaurant on the beach. It was the only place we could find that could host us. August in Algarve is restaurant chaos, everywhere we called was fully booked. We even called a restaurant across the border, also not accepting anyone else.
