stop 5: nazaré

we arrived as the sun was going down. 
just enough time to set up the tent, shop for dinner and get to sítio, still graced with a dimming sunlight.
it was the best discovery of this trip.
sitting on the top of a hill, formed by giant rocks, overlooking the city of nazaré, a lighthouse, and a deserted beach.
we had dinner inside the car, for the wind was intense. but, still,we were absolutely delighted with the stunning view.
i didn't bring my camera (he did), so a second visit, with the sun arising (and my camera) was mandatory.
as so it was. beautiful as i remembered from the day before, but in a different way. 
it was the perfect ending for this road trip.
