Angra time…

Thursday we headed to Angra for a little shopping.  They are setting up the streets for Angrafest, which starts just as we are leaving.  I wish we had known about this, but we didn't so we will wind up missing this festival.  So far, all the set-up makes it look amazing.
Lunch was at Kono Pizza, where we got pizzas and stuff in cones.  
They make very tasty french fries.
Joe had cheese pizza with black olives.
My mom and I both had the smoked salmon and cream cheese cone.
Then we walked around and looked at the decorations and all of the stores on the streets.
As my mom and Joe got ready for dinner, Ryan and I stopped for a coffee.  I think this place is hilarious with the Elvis and Marilyn display.
Dinner was at...Buzios...sorry, no lobster again.

They were looking for something lighter and they have salads at this place.  We started with olives.
They also give garlic bread here because this is an Italian restaurant.
We ordered 2 salads to split. 
I enjoyed the eggplant parmesan.  Ryan did too because we love this dish.
Joe had pasta with arribiata sauce.
My mom had this amazing shrimp pasta.
You really can't go wrong with a view like this.  Outside of Buzio's is another natural swimming hole.
For dessert we splurged on the bananas foster.
After dinner we headed to a cafe/bar for a coffee drink and just to hang out because it is nice at night by the ocean.  This place is called Mar a Mesa and they have really fun decor.
Here I am, super tired, but still with a smile on my face!
QUESTIONS:  What is your favorite pasta dish?  Are you planning to go to the ocean this summer?

Glad you are having a great time! I love gnocchi (I know, it's not really pasta). And yes, I hope we'll get to head to the ocean several times this summer. Have fun in Lisbon! :)

So fun that everything comes in cones at Kono Pizza, and the bananas foster looks amazing! I'm not a huge pasta fan, but I like anything with pesto on top.

Sounds like a good time!
I love eggplant parmesan, but my favorite pasta dish is definitely lasagna.
Sadly we don't have any ocean plans for this summer, just plans to spruce up our house!
