I took this picture while at Horta marina on Faial.
The islands of Faial and Pico are only 6 km (4 miles) apart. There is a good ferry service (€ 3,50 per adult) between Faial and Pico, which takes about 30 minutes.
Comment from Rob
Thanks for sharing the picture! I love it!
I stood right there but do not have a picture of Pico from the marina. I can't recall if it was too cloudy or if I just forgot to take a picture because I was too eager to get on the ferry to Pico. Or maybe I was too eager to get a Carlsberg at one of the establishments by the marina ;-)
PS to anyone reading this, I met Maria on the internet (but not in person, yet) because of our common interest in the Azores. Maria is from Germany and writes a blog: www.maria-shipley.de
PPS to Maria - if you prefer that I don't include your link, let me know. It is good to hear from you and thanks for submitting a picture. I am trying to develop a community feeling on the site and need some people like you to lead the way.
The marina in Horta is quite colourful. See more pictures at the Faial Horta Marina page
