August in Florida


The Azores Cruise started and ended with Dinners in Horta.       Mid cruise Dinner in Terceira. San Jorge and Pico also visited. A unique destination and largely unspoiled, well organized by Sandy and Mark and enjoyed by all. Temperatures were delightful and the low humidity was relished by the Floridians!
