Surf’s up in Ericeira and go with the flow in Sesimbra

The last time I was outside Ireland was pre-Covid (I thought I’d forgotten how airports work but a crash course in queuing soon reminds me). The last time I was in Lisbon was over 15 years ago (I know this because it was for a wedding, and my eldest child was then two; now, he’s at home prepping for the Leaving Cert). The combination of these two ‘lasts’ is a potent one and I feel quite emotional as we drive into the city in early afternoon sun.

his time, unencumbered by small child or wedding duties, I get to do exactly what I want (allowing for the fact that it’s a Monday, and most of the museums are closed). First, I head for the port and admire the energy and bustle that comes in with the brisk Atlantic wind. I walk along the Ribeira das Naus, the waterfront area where many of the ships were built in the Age of Exploration.
