The humans finally got up this morning and took me for a walk into town.

They were a little sluggish this morning as they over indulged last night.  They were kindly invited for drinks on one of the ARC boats.

You can see that the sailing ‘lot’ are a mixture of ages.  This group was also a mixture of nationalities including American, British and Spanish.

Once the humans got moving this morning we headed down the beach for the town centre.

Of course there is a church in the town centre with painted tile work

After finding a scooter hire place and a grocery store we headed back to the Marina for a siesta.

The weather is to change starting Sunday.  If we do not leave today or tomorrow, we will be stuck here for a week until it settles again.

We have decided there is still a lot to see on the island and we do not want to rush away.  It is also cheaper to be stuck here then on the main island of Madeira.

The humans plan to rent a scooter for 30 euros tomorrow so they can explore the island further.  The winds are the lightest tomorrow, so the boat should be fine left alone for the day in the harbour.  Besides I will be aboard to watch it for them.
