Island shots... Terceira Island, Azores; Portugal

Some photos of "our" island.  We've included a wide variety; and have recently updated the page  with pictures of the rocky coast and our favorite swimming hole, among other things. Included below are just some shots giving an example of the architecture here, as well as some of the views in general. We hope you think it is as beautiful here as we do...

This is called a Spirit House. There are several in each village.  Portugal, being very Catholic, has these mini chapels readily available for anyone wishing to pray or confess anytime, anywhere.
