Wall painting

ImageWhat a joy Flores is! We are having such a good time here. I will write lots more soon, but for now here are some photos of last nights’ joint painting project : on the harbour wall. We had a very jolly evening along with some other friends Fred and Tina who were doing their painting too.

It is a tradition in the Azores particularly, but also in many other Harbours around the world, to paint a mark of your boat on the harbour wall. These are so colourfull and attractive . Its fun looking at the different boats who have passed through and to try to spot ones we know. – we have only done one other one, in Maderia. The famous place for this is Horta, the Capital of the Azores we will go in a few days.
