Photographer's Note

No, it's not a scene from Alfred Hitchcocks movie, "The Birds" (1963). It is just another daily scene from the locals fishermen.
Fishing was always a primary activity from Costa de Caparica.
Costa da Caparica belongs to the Almada council, located on the south bank of the river Tagus where magnificent sandy beaches stretch south for nearly 30 kilometres from Caparica to Cabo Espichel. Big areas of eucalyptus, pine-trees and acacia-trees spread along the white, fine sands.
Costa da Caparica also holds a market between Tuesdays and Sundays where fishermens wives and farmers cry out their products There are exquisite fish restaurants where you can taste fresh and unusual dishes and beach cafes with all night animation.

Hope you like it
