As we know our last few days in the Azores are coming upon us, we take a little time away from the boat for one last opportunity to see what makes these islands so special.
Next to our marina in Praia da Vitoria, we take the first sunny evening we’ve had in months to hike to the top of a monument overlooking the harbor.
A few days later we rent a car to get further inland, for provisioning, errand running, and a little sightseeing. The first stop of the day is the Serra do Cume. An overlook just outside of Praia which sits over vast green farmland, and even has a platform to make you feel like you’re floating hundred of feet above the earth.
Our other big sightseeing stop for the day is the Algar do Carvão. A set of emptied out lava tubes in the center of the island. This set is unique because the lava escaped through a secondary vent, preserving the magma chambers and allowing them to be toured without thermal dangers.
The next morning, we toss off the lines and begin our 1,200 mile journey from the Azores to Ireland. We set off in perfect conditions, and even though quite a big rain shower passes over the island and chases us down, it can’t dampen our mood as we begin to make our miles north.
Much love from The Azores!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
