Portugal part 2

Our second day in Portugal it was HOT!! So we decided to head to the beach.  Right in Lisbon there are no beaches so you have to take public transport about 20 minutes to the beach.  It was really confusing- a tram ride to a stop, walk to the train station and then hop on a train.  Needless to say 20 minutes to the beach took us over an hour!  But once we got there it was all worth it.  We rented to beach chairs and an umbrella and enjoyed the amazing weather.

So beautiful 

We Minnesotans needed some sun

Trying to get one on our own

That night we had an amazing dinner at a restaurant I had researched before we left.  We had a hard time finding the place but enjoyed it a lot once we got there.

We spent Saturday at the Oceanarium and some more sightseeing in the city.

Hard to get a good pic of us

So awkward trying to use the self timer

We had an amazing trip and really enjoyed Lisbon.  The food, the people and the sights were all amazing!
