My DH keeps notes in his daily reading Bible about where we are or things that occurred on that day. He reminded me this week that we were on our first transatlantic cruise in November 2008.
Specifically on 11/9/2008 we were visiting Funchal, Madeira, Portugal - a very beautiful place!
This is a view of a fascinating, crowded cemetery.
(Complete with crane in the background.)
This is a picture of homes up the mountainside.
This was one of my favorite sites that we saw from the ship:
Pico Fortress which sits right amid the houses above the port.
View #2 - closer.
Note the pretty burgundy bushes along the road way at the bottom of the picture.
View #3 - closest.
The black walls of the fort are such a stark contrast to the terracotta roofs!
We toured the island on an open air double-decker bus. There were many other beautiful colors and sites, including wonderfully tiled/tiered yards and gardens. I'm sure I'll share more another day. :-)
I visited a little bit last week ut have actually spent shorter time on the computer this week.
Thanks again for visits and well wishes!
