Yesterday was “Friends Day” (Dia das Amigas) here in the Azores.. and while everyone was celebrating friendships, with cooking and dressing in costumes, a storm was moving in..
The morning was sunny and warm, but as afternoon arrived, we began to feel the wind from the oncoming storm. The other islands were hit by the storm much harder and earlier than Santa Maria, one of the islands had wind gusts of 231 km, but we had strong winds here, gigantic waves, and the craziest hail storm I have ever seen.
I picked my sweetheart up from work, and we drove to the Port (the Cais) took some photos, and then drove to the tiny village of Anjos. We sat and watched the growing waves as darkness began to set in….
When the last speck of day was replaced by night, we went home, ate Buzios, drank chamomile tea, listened to the howling wind, and hoped our house wouldn’t blow away. 😉
Everyday is an adventure, but yesterday had a little more sugar, and much more wind.
Lots of LOVE to you today. Happy Valentines~Yogini Tiff
