Don't you just love sunsets? I took this picture late in November 2009. It was a beautiful evening to sit on the beach and enjoy the sunset.

Magical Azores Islands - New Pages

This month, I added pictures of Santa Maria and Sao Jorge Island.

The Sao Jorge photos show off an island that is great for hiking. The island is quite narrow and tall, with steep cliffs. There are beauiful seaside areas at the bottom of the cliffs called Faja's. These Faja's are where the early settlement occured in Sao Jorge Island. Read more about Sao Jorge Island here

The Santa Maria Azores Pictures show just how beautiful Santa Maria is. The two beaches shown are quite beautiful.
