Day 1 – 10 July 2016 Matosinhos to Vila do Conde

15.02 miles/24.17 kms

Ascent – 456 feet

Descent – 459 feet

It was hard and it was long but it was drop-dead gorgeous!  The entire walk was along the Atlantic coast on newly constructed boardwalk.  The temperature was perfect and there was a consistant sea breeze.

But unfortunately I am unable to upload pictures.  I will however, add the pictures once I am able to figure out what the problem is.

Naturally the food was fantastic.  Pictures will follow, I promise.

P.S from Kayla –

Today was really fun. Portugal was a lot different then i thought it would be. The food was fantastic. I loved the veiw every time we came up to an opening in the sand dunes.
