As you can see, I didn't pine away while the Beans were gone.
We were going to show mum's photos of Portugal but it looks like she must have accidently deleted some of them, so we will just show you some of what she has left.
This is April 25th Bridge which is the sister bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see the statue of Christ on the far right.
This is the Discoveries Monument which they passed as they sailed up the River Tagus.
Mum doesn't know what this building is, but she liked the shape of the doorways.
They saw lots of dolphins but they were so fast that mum kept missing them in the photos and got lots of pics of the sea and nothing else. She kept snapping away and got them in the end. They also saw whales. Mum saw water spouts in the distance so kept watching to see if the whales came to the surface. A few minutes later she heard a big crash and the whale had jumped out of the water right beside the ship, but behind her. She yelled for dad and it jumped out of the water again.
Tomorrow we will show photos of the last place they visited which is the pretty medieval town of Brugge in Belgium.
