All Vacations must come to an end ...


After 17 beautiful days in Portugal, I am back at home... and suffering from Jet Lag, 3am in Toronto and I'm wide awake.  
We had a great Vacation and everyone had a great time. 
Although I had every intention in running and keeping up with my training, that really didn't happen. My IT Band had other plans for us, after 3 bad runs I decided to rest for the remainder of the vacation. AND yes I will be seeing my Dr ASAP enough procrastinating!!
Here are a few pictures from our vacation ...
our 1st day in Lourinha and the weather was not ideal 

but by the second day things started to turn around 

Feet were finally dipped in the Atlantic Ocean

and the splashing began

Sandcastles were built 

and Boats with Grandma

there was jumping for joy

and lots of Chilling in the sun 

eating Farturas (Portugals version of a Plain Churro) 

licking Cotton Candy off Fingers 

discovering new products 

Fatima was visited 

a Prison in Peniche were Alvaro Cunhal was kept 

Obidos, my favourite place in Portugal 



These are just a few pictures from our trip. 
A more detailed Trip report to follow ... NOW I have to 'run', the kids are up and wanting breakfast. 

Happy Running
