Porto to Povoa de Varzim
Walking Day 17: 30 km, 8 hrs
This was a great day for walking, almost all on oceanfront boardwalks with a cool sea breeze and no hills. The kilometers flew by.
We then headed toward the mouth of the Ave River. The Portuguese Navy was providing demonstration rides there on both a large rigid inflatable boat (RIB) and a LARC (Lighter, Amphibious Resupply - Cargo). They also had static displays on a plaza in Povoa de Varzim, all for their Navy Day.
