Feb 21, 2023:  Nazare! This was probably the favorite stop on our Portugal trip, voted on by the kids. It is such a fun beach town known for it's big waves and surf competitions. Visiting here to me, felt a lot like 'coming home' to Hawaii. There was a big festival going on when we arrived so was fun to see the locals in action and the big homemade parade floats and blasting Portuguese music for their carnival. The energy was really fun, a very neat culture experience. Lots of kids dressed up in costumes and celebration. We had the best meal of the trip too, voted on by Dad. Fresh fish caught from the shore. I really enjoyed an Acai bowl here too. One of the highlights was the Forte de Sao Miguel, just really incredible and inspiring to see the surfing wall with famous boards along the wall. . . many which have rode some of the biggest waves in the world with the athlete's words. It was really well done and made you wanna connect more with nature and adventure. 

Our little villa we stayed at.
