Ponta Delgada – Azores, Portugal – April 6, 2014
It was great to see land after a week in the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative. It was cold, raining and very windy. We were told by some fellow travelers that it is common to see fog and rain in the mornings in the Azores. They also told us that there was a Burger King with free WiFi in the port. We decided to go to the Burger King so that Stevie could load his telepods into his game (he has not been able to do that on the ship since internet access is so expensive). Of course, we felt compelled to buy lunch there so our first meal in Europe were hamburgers from Burger King.
First order of business was internet that wasn't costing .75 cent a minute. Stevie loaded his Telepods on the Ipad and Mommy checked and sent emails at Burger King
We ran into one of the kids friends "Dionne" at the popular hamburger restaurant
Stevie was a great help. He pushed Hannah all of the Azores and most of Europe
While in the Burger King, another family we got to know came in to check their e-mails. They were going back to the ship and offered us their umbrellas. With their umbrellas, we were able to make a short walk to the Gate to the City.
Hannah invented a new sport called “stroller surfing”. We stopped to take a picture and Hannah was sitting in her strolled holding the umbrella … and the wind was moving her along.

We are hoping that the weather will cooperate during our next stops. We brought clothes for cooler weather but rain makes it very hard. Stay tuned for more.....
