Portuguese branch of the wand shop in Harry Potter world?

Separately Roger, are those standard Spitfire seats that appear to be supporting you so well over long distances?

Nick,

"Made to measure suits of armour? "

I'm sure that is so close to the correct answer, but you probably don't know it.

That's a shame - I was hoping it was made to measure suits of armour.

If it really is fish and given where you are I suppose the choice is anchovy, tuna or sardines. And the cheapest is....sardines?

Hello All

              A slight change of plan we are not at Caminha but at Sao Bento Da Porta Aberta we did not fancy the drive up and back.

So we have booked into a cheap Doss House (65 Euro a night including breakfast) but poor room with no view!!!!

Hello All

                We are now in Chaves (in the Fort hotel another Doss house!)

It was a nice easy drive up and drove over a Dam and back and saw PV Panels floating on the reservoir(that's a first for me!)

A few photos before off out to explore the town before 5 o clock somewhere!

Nice pair of Lomax(s?) next to the 2CV.  Both with full weather kit, and the white one has 4 wheels by the look of it (224 model).  I built one in the mid 90's.

I thought that's what they were but was a bit surprised to see them.  The collector(s) clearly have far-ranging interests :smile:
