Hike Faial PRC5FAI Morro de Castelo Branco 31 July 2012

In the afternoon of 31 July, the weather cleared up so at 1730hrs we set off once more on our scooter for another hike. This time the short 1 1/2 hour hike PRC5FAI  to Morro de Castelo Branco on the south coast

Start of the hike

Back on Dutch Link by 2030 hrs -a very pleasant short hike and we were lucky to miss the rain showers.
