54 Days at Sea — Heading back via the Azores


Ponta Delgada, Azores

After two days in Lisbon, it was time to head for another Portuguese port of call, but this one was days away. We left Lisbon on May 4, began our return transatlantic crossing, and stopped three days later in Ponta Delgada in the Azores.
