The first stop on my transatlantic cruise was the Azores Islands although only for a day we got a good idea of what the place has to offer. One of the major attraction is the Terra Nostra Park on San Miguel Island. A major attraction is the thermal pool and some of our fellow travelers came prepared for a dip.
This is not an average pool as most of us are accustomed to and the color of the water was unusual but related to the minerals.
We made a stop at Caldieras de Furnas where there were several active bubblers and and steam could be seen from other thermal activity in the distance. A climb up the hillside would certainly have given me a better look but in essence of time and my agility I chose not to take the climb.😊
Back in the city of the province of Ponta Delgado it was very clean and with some great views across the city.
I would like to return to spend more time to enjoy some of the geothermal pools and see more of other islands.
