Fishing Boat, Nazaré

Long before Nazaré was became famous for it’s world class surfing, the town earned its livelihood as a fishing village.  Today it’s a popular seaside destination with a beautiful beach, great seafood, and, of course big wave surfing.

We spent a couple days there during the off-season so the beaches were devoid of the crowds you’d experience during the summer months.  Nazaré was the first stop, after Lisbon, on our tour of Portugal and it was a great introduction to the people, food and culture of this wonderful little country.

While fishing in Nazaré is still an important part of life in the town, the boats are now moored in a new harbor rather than on the beach and are much more modern than the fishing boat in this photo.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
