... along the coast to the far part of the island to look out over the lighthouse to give a great view out to sea. The next stop is another garden with beautiful flowers but the view from here along the coast is stunning and reminds me of pictures of Hawaii with sheer forest clad cliffs tumbling into the rocky blue sea.

... herd of cows, all black and white; they are being moved to another grazing patch, cow bells ringing and clanging away. I think we may have heard them before we saw them. We are not stopped for long as the farmer whistled them along. It is very clear they do not like this narrow road either. Milk is the largest industry here with most of the production heading to mainland Portugal.
