While riding the bus to Cabo De Roca, we sat next to a family. They had two boys, about 5 and 7. They were cutting up on the bus, wrestling in their seats. The mother scolded them. I told her, "we have two sons now in their 30's." So she asked, did they behave like that. I said, of course, boys will be boys, that two brothers close in age will have a special bond like my two sons." You could see they had it too.
I wanted to say that you'll miss even the wicked things boys do when they grow up. Enjoy it while you can. Before I could say it, we had come to our stop at Cape Roca. There was only time to tell you two have some great-looking sons, she said thank you, and we exchanged, have a nice day. It was nice to have that exchange, and I remember traveling with our sons when they were that age.Cabo De Roca is at the very western tip of the European Continent. It was windy, so windy you had trouble standing up. It actually made it kind of fun. The monument signifies Europe's most geographical western point, a very important tourist landmark. Imagine the sailors in the 1400s; sailing off into the unknown, hoping to win the lottery of discovery. Imagine their anticipation and the dreams that they had.
Now to make the trek back to Lisbon. After visiting the monument and walking along the cliffs, we catch the bus back to the Sintra train station. After catching the train back to Lisbon's main train station, After a short walk back to our condo, we reflected on a great trip. More memories were made; what a great time.
