Peniche ...

... is an old fishing port.

Once a very major one but the fleet now is much reduced. Used to be an island but now joined up with the rest of the land (not sure whether silted up or reclaimed land). The local fort dating back centuries more recently housed political prisoners - republicans I think during the revolution.

Any resemblance to my mate is of course entirely coincidental.

Going out for a fish dinner tonight. Tony is on a mission to try as many fish soups on the cruise as possible.

The wind is still blowing a near gale from the north and a number of yachts are waiting like us to head south to Lisbon.

We plan to leave tomorrow.
