Title: Leaving Funchal

Madeira
Well Funchal turned out to be such a lovely spot we stayed for an extra day.
Below is a picture I took in the palace gardens in Monte, The building in the background used to be a very posh hotel but was abandoned until recently and is now a museum.
 
 
To get to Monte we took the cable car out of Funchal. In the distance you can see the harbour breakwater in Funchal with the marina on the inland side of the harbour.
 
 
 
Kathy did a great job of recording our  visit here in the traditional style of harbour wall graffiti.
 
 
So now I have to go and reassemble the Hydrovane and get ready to set sail. We leave Funchal tonight at 1900 for Las Palmas. The weather forecast predicts calm seas and fair winds, lets hope....
 
Cheers,
 
Paul.
