What do to a rainy day

We had everything set for a great walking tour in Sete Cidades, but the rain and wind stopped us. So we had to settle for plan B and that was a wonderful experience. We visited a lot of interesting places around the west part of São Miguel. First we looked at the three lakes (Lagoa Azul, Lagoa Verde and Lagoa de Santiago), we stopped in Sete Cidades having a warm coffee and waiting out the rain. Later we stopped at Mosteiros, the look out point of Escalvado, Ferreira and Capelas to see the old whaling factory and Oficina Museu. Photos from the tour:
