Arriving by 0800, Funchal on the
Madeira Island is the city of the day. Tomorrow we will be in the Canaries, stopping atTenerife. Following that, we will be at sea for six days.
We pulled into Madeira while it was still dark with the moon hanging in the sky
Debarking early, we spent a wonderful day playing tourist, leaving me free to take hundreds of digital pictures of Funchal from the streets, cable car and a short bus tour. City, harbour, a lonely Hapsburg and plants – this is a city of mild temperatures.
Cable carring up to the top –
Flora and Fauna
Old ships, newer ships and a German ship with a sense of humour (The Diva).
We ended our tour at the old city next to the harbour.
Leaving me only the question of – Who is Jamie Monez?
Back to Rivendell.
