Weather is playing with us on São Miguel island - today we decided to walk on the other side of Sete Cidades crater and we were right and lucky to be on the sunny part of this area. With our German clients we had nice walk along the top of the crater, with beautiful and colourful views on both sides - to lakes and sea. We had our picnic lunch near the water inside the crater, and after that we had more walking around thebBlue lake and village of Sete Cidades. Three of our friends also enjoyed swimming in heated ocean water - in a natural pool and thermal baths at Ponta da Ferraria. For the rest of us, it was refreshing just to watch waves crashing on the lava rocks. It's an amazing place to spend few hours of your busy life and take a nap.
