Blind Luck

OK, so when I first discovered the Azores, I stumbled across this photo online on a National Geographic site. It said it was taken on Sao Miguel Island. Further investigation narrowed it down to Sete Cidades, the Crater on the west end of the island. Still a pretty wide target, but I wanted to see this for myself!
Today was our 'Sete Cidades' day, so after a big breakfast (at home) we hit the road for another day. We skirted Ponta Delgada, the largest town on this ...

Visit a church, take some pictures and taste the local liquors...rice pudding being this years new flavour. The local building materials are made ...

Well what a night that was, so glad the stabilisers were working!!! We were pummelled from all sides. Clocks changed back by 1 hr so more time in bed. Haven't slept right through yet so the extra hour was great. The sea is much more calm today (thank God) guessed it would be I stocked up on more travel pills yesterday just incase. The weather has improved as well blue skies overhead which is great. No water in the swimming pools yet though and as some of my friends know I ...
