24 May 2010 | of the River
for anyone with a keel boat i e. :-D

with a keel boat with the restrictions of around 1,60 meters of water...

We went north for a weekend trip, towards Poamarao, which is as far north as one can get on a keel boat.

However, the village didn't look all that appealing to us, so we turned back half a mile or so again.

Anchored at a bend in the river. Rowed the dinghy up a tributary to a little valley, completely ininhabited, with crystal clear water, fig-, olive- and almond trees, meadows and flowers en masse.... a little PAradise just for ourselves a full afternoon...including swimming in a pool in the almost dried out tributary.

A splendid day!

Sunday afternoon we went back to Alcoutim and dropped the hook at pretty much the same spot as the last time.
