By 1:30 in the afternoon, we had wound our way up into the Serra da Cabreira on a pretty little highway that had virtually no traffic. Pulling off that road onto an even smaller side road, we found a beautiful little spot under the trees to have our makeshift lunch. We had not planned ahead properly on Saturday, so here it was a Sunday and we found it difficult to stock up on supplies. As a result, our little picnic consisted of our final bun, one tomato, the last of the cheese, a few crackers and a bottle of water!
Although our menu was not too elaborate, we had the best view in the house! It was nice to sit quietly in the mountain air, enjoying the sunshine and the sounds of the birds chirping away. We got out of the car and wandered up and down the road a bit enjoying the bright yellow bushes and the green foliage all around us. A very peaceful place to stop!
