I walked 5k from Estoril to Cascais on the boardwalk, then rented a bike in Cascais for 4 euros to get to Guincho beach about 10k away. The water was chilly! But the views were fantastic. I biked back to Cascais, then on my walk back to Estoril I met up with 2 german girls who had stayed in the same hostel I had stayed at in Lisbon! What a coincidence. We hung out on the beach and got some gnarly sunburns.
Aside: It turns out that of the five german phrases I thought I knew how to say, I had been pronouncing one of them dreadfully wrong for years. Instead of saying "Gute Nacht," or "goodnight," I had been pronouncing "Gute nackt" which sounds SO SIMILAR but actually means "good naked" and NOT "goodnight." Oops.
At around 5 PM I headed back to the Cerqueira's house. Some of their friends came over and I had a lovely time trying to decipher Portuguese dinner conversation.
