When we woke up we saw that it was going to be about 72 degrees out after noon. We decided that since it was going to be nice, we'd go down to Zurriola Beach which is just at the end of our street, about 3 blocks. It's an easy walk. Got there around 12:30 PM and set ourselves up on the sand. There were a few others there, but pretty empty. It was warm in the sun so you could still sunbathe.
The surfers were in full swing, attempting their practicing on the waves, We figured this is more of a beginner surfing area because the waves were certainly smaller and less fierce than those at Guincho Beach in Lisbon. Some of the surfers were struggling to keep on the wave and a few were more athletic about it.

Zurriola Beach is a nice beach, but not the caliber of La Concha on the other side. Since we knew we weren't going to be there too long, we settled for just coming here. It was quite comfortable and like I said, no crowd, not that there were going to be any at only 72 degrees.

Stayed at the beach for about 2 1/2 hours. When we got back, did some laundry (as usual) and Terry hung it out on the line For some reason, he loves doing that!
Talked with my daughter and mom and happy to report that everything is going well and mom should go home by Wednesday. Had an easy dinner, me a salad and Terry had the left over Baccala (cod) with polenta. He went to bed early because he had to get up at 2AM to watch his precious Colts game. Sorry to say, they lost.
