Small ferry ride to get to Pico (half an hour). We will rent a car to explore the island during the day.
First stop: visit to ancient Lava tunnels. (Gruta Das Torres) As one can ever make nice pictures in the caves, there are no pictures inside, but it was splendid!
Sdgsdgsd and (somewhat cranky) Lohan who are preparing to descend.
It’s fascinating insects harvesting Máel can do in 30 minutes…
Then direction Pico… A beautiful mountain that is not reminiscent of Mount Fuji (Japan)
Lohan loves car rides, especially if there are lots of cows autour!
As here, on the other side of Pico, where it has been making a geocache…
Kids love this new activity!
Then, en route to the Museum of whales, at the end of the island. They have a movie with the last fishermen of whales (sperm) and how he took with the traditional fishing methods. (boat to sail and harpoons). Cruel, but the real life of not so long ago (the fishing was stopped here in the middle of the 80s).
Difficult to deny the past of the whaling city that much more prosperous now that the whale watching tourism develops.
Here, the best parental toilet in the world! Note the small bowl of toilet for children. There was a sink at their height also!
