Not much to report today but I thought a brief note with a few photos would be a good thing. I want to say that I truly appreciate all the comments and private messages I receive in relationship to my blog/diary. It’s all quite encouraging. Merci/Thank You/Obrigado/Danka.
Marc chose to have another day at home recuperating and pottering around. He always has a list of things he wants to do and enjoys the solitude. We other four hooligans headed off to São Miguel , the mountain, not the island, and specifically the trail trilho das águias (trail of eagles), a bit more challenging than the normal mountain biking trail. Another wonderful outing.
We had decided to head into Moncarapacho and enjoy lunch on the square. Always a grand idea!
I have been in and out of Moncarapacho countless times over the years. I’ve wandered up and down every conceivable street there is and yet today I stumbled on a tiny 18th century church right on one of the streets I’ve walked on many times and had never noticed before. This is one of the things I love about coming back to places.
And finally, at the tail end of our hike today I happened to notice a shade of green poking out behind a bush that was sitting on the front lawn/property of a house that didn’t seem to be occupied at the moment so, I wandered into the garden to have a look. What a surprise!
