Our contribution! The food was fantastic. I never got past the starters! And there was a band, rather standard and eight dancers - fantastically good and all teenagers. And a lot of champagne.
The next day we managed to crawl out of bed and take a taxi to the Botanical Garden. Like everywhere else here, it is on a steep slope, so we started at the top and wound our way down, taking in the cafe on the way.
You would not have thought the gardeners could find enough flat space for a glorious parterre!
to sails it has an engine!
Late in the evening we sat on the hotel terrace looking out to the darkening sea and drank. -- Madiera of course.
