Azores - Faial Island, June 24th-30th

View of Pico from Horta

Faial is larger and more populous than Flores.  And the port and marina at Horta are much larger, it is truly a yachting crossroads of the Atlantic.  There were boats from everywhere, bound for the UK, Europe and the Med.
There are hundreds of painted yacht signs around the marina

We had a few days before Karl arrived to clean the boat, make the inevitable repairs, and play tourist.

In the mid-1980s there was a major volcanic eruption at one end of the island, so we went to have a look.  It was a moonscape.

On the 28th Karl arrived. A couple days later we set out for Terceira.
