You can´t predict the weather,

The first swell of the winter. Yeah of course, first I want to see it before I will believe any of it. But to be fair, it is ticking all the boxes to be like that. The swell is already massive (4 meter and 9 seconds.) And the waves are pretty big too:

Today we have 18-19 seconds with almost 3 meter swell. That´s nothing short of a small tsunami. We can actually hear the waves in our house in Vila do bispo. But exactly at that moment we have a few guests from germany and swiss that specifically request some smaller conditions. So instead of driving from Lagos to the west. We now drive from the west of the Algarve to Lagos.
