Three attempts to find a place to stay! We anchored off Praia da Luz as a starting point. Then the rollers built up, the tide receded and we found we had very little water below the keel so we weighed anchor and set sail for Lagos. A bit of a rush to get there before dark but we just made it and had a spectacular sunset as our reward. A peaceful night with Hecla rafted alongside us but off early in the morning to Ria Alvor to find an anchorage. We spent a lovely 24 hours at anchor and enjoyed the peace of the lagoon. Sadly the town wasn’t quite what we had expected … very touristy and the only language spoken appeared to be english!
