Earlier this month we spent a week in Portugal. This is a country we've visited many times. This time we stayed in Fuseta, a small fishing village on the south coast, east of the regional capital of Faro.
|Although not a big tourist area we were able to rent a very nice apartment.|
The town has some beautiful beaches.
|Next stop Africa|
|Looking back to town|
|Despite being a small town there were dozens of small bars & restaurants|
|Choice was limited. Some places don't have a menu and just grill meat or locally caught fish outside. Prices were very cheap and the locals seems to eat out every night.|
|Near us where these tiny quaint houses.|
|I can't quiet understand the sign but I think they were built for the disabled by a local who made good in America.|

A walk outside town brought us to an area where they make salt. Shallow lagoons are flooded with seawater and the sun does the rest.
|The lagoons were also home to a flock of flamingos. The birds were wary of us and flew off as we approached.|
Fuseta is a small town but it has its own bike club. Here is their clubhouse. "Pata Negra" means literally "black hoof" and usually refers to a cured leg of pork (but may have some other meaning in this context)
|Family crypts in the graveyard|
There's not that much to do in Fuseta but it has a railway station that lets you explore the Algarve.
