May 7-Thursday-Azores

Crossing the Atlantic by ship is a unique experience. It isn’t something I would want to do often but it has been enjoyable. One of the great blessings of this journey has been calm seas. I am grateful for that. The people on the Prinsendam have all been nice to travel with. The food of course is outstanding.

We joined our tour group for sightseeing on Ponta Delgada at 12:30 p.m. today. We visited a pineapple plantation, Ribeira Grande and Fire Lake. Relaxing and fun.

They are cranking up the ship and we are already on our way. Short stop. Lisbon on Saturday.

I read Jason’s blog on Jimmy’s visit to see Retia at West Jeff. The pictures brought tears of joy to our eyes. We are praying for Retia’s continued recovery.
