Tavira to the Anchor graveyard

Another sunny day as we set off on a jog to test out our new running backpacks. I spent ages trying to work out how to set up the water bag and drinking pipe, but after checking the internet I got it sorted in the end.

It was surprisingly comfortable to wear and it was such a luxury to drink on the go, and also carry my phone, energy bar, spare teeshirt, keys and money.

The route was great and mostly off road.

Then we crossed a bridge on to the offshore island.

On the other side of the bridge was a petite train that ran along its own little track.

We followed the train line that ended just before a beautiful boardwalk to the sea.

Just to the side was the Anchor Graveyard - a collection of about 200 anchors that were used for tuna fishing, but are now all together on the dunes.

Once again the beach was absolutely superb and ran for miles in both directions.

We then turned around and headed back via the little town of Santa Luzia and through more salt pans, but no flamingos in sight today.

Just under 14 Kms, and I was pretty tired by the end.
