A lovely place to end! We had the odd misgiving when we arrived in Vila Franca do Campo, but we were completely wrong.
Such a wonderful renovation, retaining character and atmosphere, and with smiling, helpful staff. Convento de Sáo Francisco was a real find.
I even found a niche to watch the final of the French Open tennis at Roland Garros, while a certain other enjoyed one last lounge beside a hotel pool. All’s well that ends well? Rafa certainly thought so! And as we sashayed out to our final evening meal, would you credit it but a band struck up in the distance? Just one more procession, albeit a very low key affair, which rather suited our mood.
And the sun finally set on an epic Azores adventure. I have so enjoyed sharing it with you.
So sorry to have confused everybody! I intended to schedule Vila Franca do Campo, my Monday walk, for today, but I got over-excited and posted it late on Saturday. My links to everyone’s walks are over there so please do check back for any you’ve missed. I doubt I’ll post again before the weekend. Have a great week!
