Impressions of Madeira archipelago On November 2, 2019 By syaltimateIn Atlantic, Madeira, Media Blog, Portugal just a quick stop on the way to Porto da Cruz using the old road ER 108; around 600 m above sea level, close to Ribeira de Machico. a nice colourful tree close to Pico de Areiro ( if I remember right) my boys 😁 another beautiful … spectacular… view quay Porto da Cruz Luis and me some interesting wickerwork in … the famous factory of Camacha with strange sitting woman in basket sled the only highway of Madeira leads its way underneath the impressive stalks of the landing strip of Funchal airport sailing to Porto Santo walking at the beach of Porto Santo and… having a break at a sweet beach bar almost at the end of porto Santo beach at low tide sitting at the porch of the spectacular Columbus museum at the anchorage Baía d’Abra close to Marina Quinta do Lorde the boys did a walk taking a steep track up to the ridge and took some pics from the contrasting … views of the north side a part of the trail an ancient animal Ilhas Deserta Grande, at the scenic anchorage Carga da Lapa, looking south now looking north ashore at the little path in the background Altimate one can still see the landslip; it sadly blocked the track which led to the plateau 400 meters above; and in front the house of the rangers two concentrated players trying not to loose😉 a lot of doors are painted in Funchal as well as the parking permit terminals a church in Funchal the famous market Mercado dos Lavradores with many colourful spices and sometimes unusual fruits amazing pavement and interesting beverage offer 😂 ( for the non german speakers ” Kühlschränke” means fridges 😉) a gaze inside a non used house Funchal bench square at Funchal with small alleys a trip to Câmara de Lobos, a picturesque little harbour and big minions posing family a fluke as an antenna mount, which reminded me somehow of a small longhorn 😁 a sleepy lazy dog looking down on Cámara de Lobos further west at Ponta do Sol at the coast with different fauna and a very special menu in a sweet bar at Ponta do Sol and some cute kittens the cable car at Monte – like being in the alps on our way to the tropical garden in Monte with beautiful old lanes now in the tropical garden with huge big ferns … and mossy benches lovely flowers tropical trees fancy sculptures art within the tropical garden what is wrong here? Luis and me waiting to see a basket sled dancing in the garden what’s he laughing about? the sleds in black and white a sledge fun run our last day together was a bit cloudy but still stunning, we headed off to Santana to the north side of the island the typical little houses from Santana another short cable car down to the beach at Santana view from top of the cable and one of the million waterfalls the boys exhausted waiting for food in a restaurant up in the mountain; it did look like a frame house from the alps some sailing impressions Luis’ plane leaving 😥 👋 Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
