More visits to Cascais...   Download times...
We visited Portugal a few times in 2002 - it is quite cheap these days and the short flight from Gatwick makes it very handy for us in Canterbury. We all went over to visit Jo & James in September for a week, and then Rafferty and Vanessa flew back in November for a short break. It's a hard life! Anyway, here are a few of the better pictures we took on these two trips - you'll probably notice the emphasis has shifted away from the scenery and onto Rafferty, but that's parenthood for you!   Please note that in order to present large, high-quality pictures, this page may take almost a minute to download completely. The first few pictures will be visible quickly, but please have patience with the rest!

Dan, Raffy, Annabelle and Vanessa
Once we arrived at Jo & James' house in Cascais: here we are with our goddaughter Annabelle.
  Raffy and Lala
Rafferty loves the Teletubbies, like a lot of children his age. This cuddly Lala became a firm favourite.

The shape of things to come?
The shape of things to come? No - be a dentist! They earn more!

Rafferty decided to chase Annabelle around the kitchen a lot (these two pictures from the November trip).
