Levada Walk

Caroline and I went to Madeira last week with her parents, for her granny's 90th birthday. While we were there, we went for a levada walk. It was beautiful! It started at a place called Ribeiro Frio (literally Cold Stream), just below a trout farm. Kind of odd, given that it was up in the mountains. 

The weather was good-ish, a bit on the cloudy side and definitely rainy towards the end. There was still plenty of opportunity for photography, despite that!

It took us about 3 hours to go the 11 km to the cafe where we had arranged to meet Caroline's parents. We stopped for a good lunch along the way, and I took one of the best photos that I ever have done. 

A good place to stop for lunch!
