    Decided to join all the freeloading tossers at Silves, but are we in the right place? Am in the unofficial Aire by the swimming pool and river. But no sign of any engines being changed or long term living set ups. Lots or johnny foreigners but other than that all peace and quiet.

    Is there somewhere less salubrious I should be?

    By the way it is p*****g it down at the moment.

    yeah yeah yeah, rub it it in won't you. :D But the sun lasts about as long in Wales as the rain does in Portugal, so we will soon be happy again.

    Don't think that would be a big seller at all Jim. 99% of Funsters don't wild camp, and that same percentage prefer wine; have left the Funster tent by 11pm and are tucked up in bed with cocoa

    I'd wear one though ;)

    No early morning siren here, unlike Elvas. But are we at the place everybody has been talking about.

    Not sure Peter - I think we will be moving West but will let you know in the morning. The coordinates are N37.06646 and W8.79651. I have them in degrees minutes and seconds if you prefer!

    Hi Cliff and Geraldine, Now checked where you are and I did not realise that you were that far west already. Did you not stop at Armacou? It looks to be colder in the west for the next few days and we want to see a bit more of the coast between here and Silves so will probably make our way more slowly towards that area. What are your intentions for the weekend and after?

    Not sure really - if the weather stays bad we may head inland to the lakes and head up that way. I want to visit Santiago de Compostella and Galicia but apart from that we have no fixed plans! Make sure you visit Lagos - it's lovely. We are now at Sagres near Cape St. Vincent and its mucho windy!

    I suspect we will be heading there for the weekend, so hope to see you then. That's if it ever stops bloody raining!
