Okay, so maybe it wasn't like rock climbing, but I did walk FOREVER it seemed with a group of ladies today to the top of a mountain. There was a road the entire way, so we never had to go through dirt trails, but it was a challenge none the less.
At the top of Mt. Frangueira, there was a spectacular view! Here are a few pictures from our journey.
Walking over an old bridge
We shared the road with many cyclists
Today is Portugal's Independence Day, so there were lots of festivities in town. Including a stage with folk dancing and music.

I took time to smell the flowers
At the top!
Ladies resting before we headed back
Another view from up top. That's the ocean in the distance. Our family has a joke that if you look hard enough you can see the east coat of America.
There were about 50 of us.
We had a lot of fun and everywhere we went, people turned their heads and stared. Guess it's not often 50 ladies wearing purple t-shirts pass through the center of town!
Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend.
