Waiting for the wind

We sailed down to Sao Miguel, the largest island in the Azores, a 24 hour
trip and one day closer to our final destination in Portugal. From here just
850 miles to Lagos on the Algarve. With wind that should be about 5 days,
but at present we are in a dead calm, so nothing for it but to stay here,
hire a car...again....to explore and make the most of it. To be fair it is
often calm here, the 'Azores High' is responsible, pushing the Atlantic
storms north towards Northern Europe.
By Sunday we should see a slight change.
