lapilli is a generic term so it is no surprise that this stuff looks nothing like the pretty white balls we found on Fuerteventura

Nossa Senhora da Saúde. More Senhoras

Domestic details - there are few supermarkets. All Madeirans seem to grow food and flowers, whether it is in a few fields or in pots on the steps.

This combination of palms and misty peaks is typical of the north coast.

Restoration of the Chapel of Our Lady of Fátima. Apparently this hill is called the Pico da Cova. More Senhoras

The road along the north coast is now mostly through tunnels. Read how the arid thirsty Canarians looked enviously on this abundance of water

Whereas the sea on the south coast was quite calm, the power of the Atlantic is obvious on the north coast. It could almost be a different ocean.
