Photos from Lisbon and Nazare

Here is a selection of photos from our Lisbon trip:

The Royal Barge in the Maritime Museum, built in 1778 and last used in 1957 when Queen Elizabeth visited Lisbon. Powered by 80 oarsmen

Our hotel, left, with the Monastery in the distance and the entrance to the Presidential Palace to the right

Sea Otters at the Oceanario aquarium

Back in Nazare, the fishing fleet is busy all around us:

Aboard Maunie we've had a new temporary crewmember helping out. This is Puskin at work:

Checking that the window seal has dried

Supervising the storage spreadsheet

We are getting cautiously optimistic that the favourable wind will arrive on Friday so, meanwhile, it's on with the boat jobs and planning.
