My contribution to the idea mill was to go on a hike in the mountains to enjoy a swim in the cool water from the waterfalls. It was a long car ride to Faial da Terra. We had a rigorous hike up (and down) the “easy” trail. We were replenished from a swim in the sparkling cool waters of the beautiful waterfall. As we descended the trail I came upon the huts of a farm, some abandoned, and found a place where terra cotta tiles were being made. The vistas as we approached the village were beautiful. The yellow flowers are a form of ginger that are found throughout the island. Its leaves are used to envelope cheeses for freshness.
