Our Summer House-Swap in Cascais   Download times...
In late August we all flew over to Cascais for a nice two-week holiday. Jo & James needed to go back to the UK for a wedding and so we did a house swap; Eddie and Cathy flew over a few days after we arrived to join us on holiday and a very relaxing time was had by all. After a week, Jo & James came back and we spent some time with them as well. This was Monty's first trip abroad, at six weeks old when we left. Rafferty had a wonderful time playing with Oliver and Annabelle when they returned.   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!

Quite close to the house in Cascais, this is Boca d'Inferno - literally 'Hell's Mouth' - a specatacular natural rock formation on the coast which you can explore.
