Yesterday our neighbour´s daughter and her husband kindly invited us for a day out to accompany them on their regular visit to the husband´s father, who lives in a village near the banks of the Douro river, surrounded by grape vines. It was an opportunity for us to see an area we had not visited before, it was wonderful, the countryside was stunning. I have attached a couple of photos which may give some idea of the beauty of the views. For lunch we visited a restaurant down by the side of the river, converted from an old railway station, called Cais da Ferradosa.
