A Day Cruise on The Douro River in Porto, Portugal

The scent of the ocean always reminds me of carefree days hanging on the beach or cruising along in a boat, with the salt spray cooling my sun-warmed skin. Cruising along Porto's Douro River, with scents of the nearby ocean blasting fresh and brisk in my face, memories of passed ocean cruises came back to me.
