WWKIP Day to Pinhão

Here are the pictures of our trip last Saturday to Pinhão. We had a bit of luck weather wise, as we left Porto with it pouring down with rain, but by the time we got to Pinhão it cleared up, it did try to rain while we were having our picnic, but it cleared up shortly after that. The only thing that didn’t clear up was the wind, we had to seek refuge on the terrace of the cafe by the river.

My Vertices Unite, I was working on section 3 (the black colour at the top)

Several people were being taught by Joana how to knit during the train ride

Now I usually take this train up to Marco de Canaveses when I go to my parents’ house, but I’d never gone further up the line, so from here on out it’s views I’d never seen before.

At this point we’re really close to the river, so close in fact that should the river rise even 2-3m (which could happen during the winter months, due to heavy rainfalls) the train can’t run on the tracks, as they’d be under water for sure.

A couple of the stops, I was too busy knitting to take photos at every stop 🙂

And finally we arrived at our destination, we crossed the tracks and headed to the picnic area.

Some swallows decided that the underside of this balcony is a good place to create their nests, there were a whole bunch of them flying around going in and out of the nest.

And my finished Lumpy Space with the ends still to sew in, but which I ended up wrapping around my neck to protect from the wind and from the sun.

And progress on my Vertices Unite

While at the cafe, I heard two couples speaking Dutch, so I went over there to say hello and ended up having a really nice conversation with these couples that were from Den Haag and Assen. They’d arrived two weeks ago in Lisboa, rented a car and criss-crossing their way up North.
