Photographer's Note

As it started to rain in the North Coast, we rapidly went back to sunny South.

This pic was shot from 580m above sea level, at Girão cape, the 2nd highest in the world (after Enniberg, in the Faroes). Near the top of the cliff there is a considerable cacti population, mainly nopals; the ones with yellow flowers are Opuntia ficus-indica, locally called tabaibeira and will eventually give a sweet fruit known as prickly pear or Indian fig (tabaibo).

The catamaran is based on Funchal marina and used as a tourist facility, making tours twice a day – Girão cape is the usual turning point of the western part of the tour.

You are invited to the WS and tell me which you (dis)like more...
