Easy Rider – Faial

Scooting around Faial including several kilometers on compacted volcanic sand – we hired a couple of 125’s and got lost in the hills. The B/W images show the eruption in 1958 which created a new island which bubbled up from the sea in 3 days alongside the colour photos of the now renovated lighthouse. Underground is a very well presented and comprehensive volcano museum. The last picture shows the 2km wide volcanic crater on the centre of Faial, Caldeiro.GOPR4911 GOPR4924 GOPR4925 GOPR4926 GOPR4930 GOPR4932 GOPR4933
