Photographer's Note

The Dock of Riverside Pardelhas, in the municipality of Murtosa, Aveiro district. In this beautiful place, dock shelter of some moliceiros (typical boats of the Ria de Aveiro) there is also a workshop typical of these boats. The site is also where local people gather in moments of rest.
Moliceiros are unique and perfect lines boats, sporting colorful decorative panels. Are
typical of the Ria de Aveiro, in harvesting the seaweed fertilizer of choice, well within the most demanding and catuais ecological parameters, which transformed barren sandy soil on agricultural land.
Currently the moliceiros also do tours of the estuary and the city of Aveiro channels.
