With the arrival of new visitors comes the prerequisite settling in and getting over the jet lag. It’s unavoidable and so, we know to give everybody at least three “easy” days……before we suggest hiking up São Miguel!!!
A lovely lazy morning for all of us……..breakfast whenever each of us managed to get up then eventually a lovely walk to a nearby restaurant, Restaurante do Campo for a relaxing patio lunch.
Everything is starting to show signs of life. It’s not actually “spring” just yet but for us Canadians, it sure feels like it as we start to find new blossoms and colour each day.
Look at those happy faces. No snow in anybody’s immediate future!!
You can see that the temperatures were pretty amazing today. The bamboo stick was to ward off any dogs that might bother us…….wasted carrying them!
Look at this wonderful curling flower on the cactus plant. I never tire of seeing them. They never get old to me.
Deep and serious conversation without doubt!!
Sitting on the patio of Restaurante do Campo, which is about a 10 minute walk from the house down a lovely country lane…..which you could see in the last few photos if you were paying attention!!
Pat and Gary enjoyed the fish of the day…..azevia or sole
Marc and I both enjoyed the costeletas de porco com cebolas…pork chops with onions.

A lovely blooming cactus on the side of the road…..it will be brilliant yellow in another few days.
Following our wonderful lunch and relaxing, but invigorating walk, Marc was looking forward to an hour or so of artistic creativity and Pat, Gary and myself decided to head into Fuzeta, enjoy a stroll on the beach and around town. It was downright hot by this time but not a complaint was uttered.
That would be part of Fuzeta in the background.
Look at those smiles!!!!! Snow…..what is snow?????
Truly a great day and it’s not quite over just yet. Dinner is done……dishes are packed away………the music is mellow and the vino is just about finished. How did we all get so lucky?
And one last shot to make you happy……….as it did us.
