Portugal - the last chapter!

You might be beginning to think we were in Portugal for a month, it was in fact only a week, I just have been having trouble with the old delete prepare yourself for a whole lotta pics...

Jake leading Grannie Annie down the path at our Quinta...

We explored the coastline and found some interesting looking steps.
Blustery day, we enjoyed some fresh seafood for lunch, including portugese prawns, lobster stew, and mussels!

Caught in the rain in Sintra, we took shelter at a local cafe. This woman didn't want to wait out the downpour!
Jake got a shower too:)
After the rain...
My fave pic of Gerry
Walking up the cobblestone streets of Sintra in search of linen for Anne and tile for me! I think we were both pleased with our purchases:)

More from Palacio de Pena. Anne & Gerry enjoying the view!

Jake makingi friends with local Portugese school children.

At 'Old Lavrador', we returned to this very friendly and yummy restaurant! Our waitress adopted Jake for the duration of our meal:)
This was a goat themed restaurant, from the food to the decor.
Back at our Quinta, Jake enjoying? some freshly picked fruit.
Very serious holiday...

Enjoying lunch outside our Quinta! It was such a pretty spot to eat!
Lounging by the pool
Cuddling up with Grannie Annie

Not sure if drinking by the pool is allowed, but they let it slide...

Spider vs Devil

Still have some portugal pics coming, but here are a few from Oct 31st in the meantime...

Halloween started out with Jake helping me decorate spider web cookies for his friends! It was all part of the spider costume plan...

(Cookies picture just for you Jen:)

But you may notice that he was dressed in red in these party pics...he ended up crying his little heart out when I attempted to get him into the spider costume, so costume #2, the little devil was born...

So, there were 2 little witches (Callia & Thea) and 2 little devils (Felix & Jake) at the party. No room for spiders anyway!
Jake was pretty proud of his pitchfork!
I took this picture a few days before, when he was actually willing to be a spider!

Happy Halloween from Jake!
