deskgotwings Practicing #buoy lines, #hooks & #knots with Snr Luis on the beach. What a legend. After years as a fisherman here in the #algarve he now offers boat rides to the glorious #caves along the #coast. He really is one of a kind. Experience matters! #portugal #algarve #visitportugal #igerportugal #fishing #cave #boattours #diving #diveportugal #padi 2w

deskgotwings Sadly no #diving today. Strong winds and large waves in the algarve. It did provide time for knot practice with the legendary Snr. Luis on the beach side. I question anyone to know more about the #Atlantic sea, the #winds and the #current. #padi #knots #dive #diveportugal #visitportugal #igerportugal #adventure #culture #history 2w

deskgotwings Amendoa Amarga, Limao e Gelo. This photo doesn't do this post meal drink justice. It's a bitter almond liquor with a squeeze of fresh lemon and ice. Delicious served alongside a short strong coffee. #portugal #visitportugal #drink #igerportugal 2w

deskgotwings I love the way the fishermen eat their sardines. After a long day at sea they start up the BBQ and grill them gently with a little oil and lemon. Once cooked they then place the fish on a piece of bread and nibble the flesh away from the bone. No cutlery. They discard the bone and then eat the bread which has soaked up all the juices. It's an art! Yum. #portugal #food #sustainablefishing 2w

deskgotwings From 711 to 1249, much of the territory of what is now Portugal was under Muslim control. This presence has left a significant cultural heritage in Portugal, notably in the form of Islamic art - even the tiles framing this mirror reveal the interesting history. #portugal #history #islam #art #ceramics 2w
