On Our Way…..

Well it has been a long time since I wrote last. We are doing well, just everyday life stuff.

It is time for our trip to Europe. We went a couple of days early to Ft Lauderdale. We stay with some friends. Had a great time catching up. Thanks Dave and Terry for putting up with us all.

We are taking the Regal Princess to Copenhagen. We had six relaxing days at sea. The weather was pretty good. No real problems.

Our first port of call was Ponta Delgado in the Azores. We have been there a few times so knew what we wanted to do. We had a very short day, so got off the ship early. Found a taxi to take us to Furnas. It takes about an hour to get there. It is a very beautiful drive. On the way up we hit fog, then as we dropped down into the valley.

We went to a hot spring we had visited before. Since the last time we were here they have done improvements. They used to have 3 pools, but have added 2 more. They also added hot showers. (This is a major improvement, the last time they were freezing cold!)

Spend about 1 1/2 hours relaxing in the pools. After cleaning up we walked done to a pub we had visited before. The guys split a hamburger and we had fries and a beer.

Then it was time to head back to the ship.

Had a great day. Always love the time we get to spend in the Azores.

Next stop Cherbourg, France.
