Tuesday. Already?

It sure is and we haven't missed all those political ads and phone calls!

So after another day of sightseeing yesterday and naps for some (not me!), we decided we really didn't want to go out to eat at all. Sweet MM braved the rain to seek out substance times four (what a guy!), and we picnicked in our room. I googled fado music, which entertained us for our redneck dinner, complete with dessert.

Go ahead and laugh at us. We can take it.

After breakfast this morning, we loaded up on our respective busses, visited the Tower of Belem, back to the Discoveries monument (great commentary by our tour guide), then the Coaches Museum...like in royal coaches, fancy coaches, and even a few gaudy ones. Photos later.

Next, a return (for MM and me) to the Jeronimous Monastery, topped off by a pastry made famous by the monks of the monastery, Pastry of Belem. And it was GOOD. And a guarded secret recipe, so don't even ask for it.

We have a group dinner tonight here at the Ritz (yes, peaches, we are staying at the ritzy Ritz).

Our bags need to be ready for pick up from the room at 7a, we have already been told.

Check. Will do. Then we head to Porto to the boat! Yay!!!

Life is good, y'all! Well, the internet isn't great, but everything else is just fine and dandy. WYWH!

I love your dinner idea. I get tired on tours having to go eat here and then go eat there. That was fun I'm sure. Just relax. Excellent.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you. ♥♥♥

Finally, the boat! :-) I think you made a good choice for last night, and hope tonight will be enjoyable, too.

I love dinner in sometimes. If you throw in a cheesy movie, it's a dandy plan!

Hooray for finally getting on the ship!! big hugs xoxo
