Hello from Portugal – Day 2

Day 2 started with a run through the forest followed by a good paddle. The wind had picked up a little with few whitecaps but didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. The wind had died for the afternoon paddling session and with the sun shining and 22C is was pretty much ideal conditions on the water. Michael continued his learning experience and  had the pleasure of finding out what it is like to be left in the wake of a top Russian paddler.

The rental car arrived so we made a trip to the grocery store about 10km away. We thought $10 was an awesome deal for 24 beer until arriving home to find either paddling makes your hands very big or they were actually “mini” beers.

Kids are swimming this morning then we are off to Nelo for a factory tour and a little shopping in Porto.

Cheers,

Michael
