Blonde Moment - Blog 11 Sines
A dull morning in Sines but warm. The crews all assembled at the castle high above the marina and sandy beach. The Portugese explorer and navigator Vasco da Gama was born here in 1469 and an excavation at the castle has unearthed coins, pottery and even Roman artefacts. We were given a tour of the castle and museum and then treated to a delicous spead of tarts, quiches, salads and fruit with cake. A real treat.
The sun came out in the afternoon as we were all preparing for tomorrow's final leg and a really long one round Cape St Vincent to the Algarve and Lagos.
