Dont Forget It’s Market Day

Castro Marim, Portugal

I love this village. It’s quick to get to and the kids are always fascinated by the castle and the fact the Spanish flag isn’t flying but a Portuguese one instead. Have a lazy morning strolling around the village before heading back to the beach.

Fishermen On Isla Canela Beach, Spain

The fisherman are a fixture along the shoreline. Collecting local clams ready for sale in bars and restaurants as well as in the local market.

They are a delight to watch and it's always amazing to see how they scrape the clams from the sea bed. Why not try them? They are truly delicious and are on everyone's menu.
