I had no idea the Azores are so beautiful.

That is one heck of a lagoon. Wow! Good swimming? Great photos, too. I was in the Azores in 1957...I was in the U.S. Navy, flying from Minnesota to Morocco. We stayed over night at a US Air Force base, but I don't remember too much except it was very windy and we almost went over the end of the runway when we landed which would definitely not have been a good thing!

What an idyllic place! I can feel the peaceful, positive energy you must have experienced while you stood there taking in this breathtaking view.

Portugal is definitely on my list. This place looks wonderful. I'll have to look at a map to see how far this is from the mainland.

@Tapirgal: It's far... :-)
