Our flight to the Azores went very quickly at two hours and fifteen minutes. The real bonus was we gained an hour as we approached Ponta Delgada. The plane was pretty well empty so we were able to move around a bit. Tony was able and very happy to watch the approach from his view and could see the outlines of the islands and the lights coming on as night was creeping in. We disembarked, walked to the terminal, our bags were there waiting, grabbed them and hopped in the taxi for downtown. How easy was that?
Our taxi driver could not speak English, he was very pleasant we quickly arrived at our hotel, Vila Nova Hotel, in the historical section of downtown Ponta Delgada
We stay put, it is dark, late for us and it has been a long day. We will see what tomorrow brings. The weather is the big question and will dictate our activity. No matter what we will embrace this island as much as we can.
We are in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Sao Miguel, hard to believe!
More tomorrow, good night.
