2021 A look around Horta

Just to give you an idea of the typical Portuguese Azorean architecture, blending commonly white painted plastered rock walls with dressed volcanic corners, lintels, window surrounds and cills, steps and walls in a strong contrast of colour and beauty and durability.
It wasn’t long before we enjoyed lunch at the sailors’ haunt, Pete’s Cafe Sport and looked for our Norwegian friends’, Sven and Irene’s flag hanging from the ceiling with a thousand others. No decorative gimmick here, these flags date back many years and are sometimes repeated when a vessel passes through regularly and all signify that sense of achievement unique to sailing across wide, deep oceans.
