The workmen have also started on the partition walls for the bathroom and bedroom in the loft space. I am looking forward to seeing all the photos that Roy has taken on his trip.
Roy has gone to Cafe Do Alto, just down the road near Louriceira to eat again tonight, he says its been 27 degrees again today and although the river beach cafe has closed there have been people using the river and the beach for swimming and sunbathing. Roy also went to the marina near the Cabril Dam and then visited Pedrogao Pequeno today. He met an english man who explained that he has been visiting Portugal for 30 years and living there for 12. His daughter is also making plans to move there from the UK and is having a house built, having become disillusioned with the politics of the UK (and the weather!!).
A friend of mine has indicated that her and some relatives may be interested in renting our property sometime in May 2013, which is excellent news as we do intend to rent it out as a commercial, but family run holiday let next year until such time as we can make our move to Portugal more permanent.
