Sofia sent me this card from Armação de Pêra, in Algarve, as a game prize.

Armação de Pêra is a beautiful long expanse of sandy beach stretching for over 6 km and framed by the golden limestone cliffs that form the natural backdrop to so many of the beaches on this western side of the Algarve. Originally used by the local fishermen from the nearby village of Pêra for preparing their fishing tack (armação), Armação de Pêra has now become one of the most popular beaches in the Algarve and a modern resort, offering a host of amenities and entertainment. - in: http://www.portugal-live.com/portugal/algarve/armacao-de-pera.html
The fishing legacy is still however alive as along the beach you can see the local fisherman heading out to sea on their boats.
