Ack!  Get me back to the Home Page


The Campground was located in a park very close to the center of town.  We immediately met 2 motorcyclists from France, and an older couple from Belgium.  Albert felt it was his responsibility to provide Port all night.  Since we were both brought up well including good manners, and not wanting to disrespect our elders . . .

At the end of the campground was a small castle in a moat

The grapes for port wine are actually grown outside of this region and transported to the "caves" along the river in Porto, hence Port Wine.   Above the caves are the buildings which after proper fermentation, refine, bottle, and distribute the wine.

Look close to see the names on the roof-tops
