Today once again we had a later start due to a later breakfast in the Casa. It was a perfect day, for me the temperature was pleasant as we walked through wooded paths. But it was a long walk almost 15 miles.
We stopped several times for drinks and snacks along the way. I was walking with Marita; at one point she screamed and jumped in front of me. There was a huge snake across the path that darted into a crevice in a rock wall.
We then came upon another cafe where we encounted a beautiful Siamese cat and an Iguana.
Finally we arrived in Ponte de Lima. The Casa do Arrabalde is fabulous. It is a grand old home with many rooms and the most gracious hostess, Isabella. When in Ponte de Lima, I definitely recommend a stay in Casa do Arrabalde.
