Flash flood roads and a thunderstorm in the Algarve!!!!

Today we found a smaller beach to try to visit, but we had to drive about 5 minutes down a dirt road to access the beach between 2 sand cliffs. As we were driving a heavy thunderstorm hit the coast and dumped a lot of rain in a short period of time. The dirt road had a flash flood while we drove down and had fast flash flood rivers created the flowed down the road to the beach. We quickly went down to check it out and decided to come back up before the road got completely washed out.  Aneta took a pretty cool video of me driving up the dirt road with the flash flood rivers coming down hard.

While it was bad weather for the next 2 hours we went to the small fishing town of Olhos D'Agua to visit the waterfront cafes and shops. Ended up having a beer and hanging out.

We ended up going back to that beach later. Its official name is Praia das Belharucas.
