We took a taxi up to the caldeira, the large volcano crater on Faial. It is about 2 km in diameter and the trail is in some parts running along the edge which is not wider than one meter. On both sides it is steep, about 300 m down to the bottom of the caldeira and about 1000 m down to the ocean on the other side but not as steep all the way down… We had a great view over Faial and also over to Pico and Sao Jorge islands. All the Hortensias are very intense in their blue color up here in the humid air. And there are plenty of them!


Walking is good for the appetite. We decided to take the local restaurant here in Feteria tonight and had delicious clams and the favorite fish - swordfish.
