Puppies and bunnies and horses oh my!

Day 28 - 20.05.12 Foz

After a bit of a lie in (what its Sunday after all!), I manage to drag Chris up the stairs to the top of a hill I’d spotted the day before.  It’s a bit of a trek but the views over the town are nothing short of stunning, it really is such a lovely place.

Afterwards we’re back on the road and on our way to Foz.  We know nothing about the place except that there are a couple of wild camping spots so we go check it out.  I couldn’t be happier that we did, its one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.  Our spot for the night is beside a very quiet and impeccably clean beach with crystal clear water that looks almost tropical.  We enjoy a long walk along the edge of the waves and spot a beautiful horse in a nearby field.

Town is a fifteen minute walk away and quite a surprise.  We’d expected a handful of basic shops but there’s quite a large town centre and some bars that are pretty bustling for a Sunday afternoon.  There’s also a pet shop with PUPPIES in the front window *swoons*.  Sadly, being Sunday, it’s shut so we’ll have to go back tomorrow so I can coo at the bunnies they also have in store.

We spot the port area and are quite taken aback by the beach area beside it.  The sand is bright white and meets the sea to one side and the river to the other.  The river is backed by huge hills and the panorama is amazing.  There is a long ‘paseo’ following the sea which juts in and out along with the cliffs and makes for a gorgeous walk back to the van for dinner.
