Furnas. San Miquel, Azores.
Some snapshots from a project in the farthest flung outpost of Western Europe! I spent time in the Azores just outside Furnas on the eastern island of San Miquel, working at the award winning Research and Monitoring Station, exploring ways of using their new willow collection. I spent some time with some of the islands basket makers there and came home with a few extra baskets.
Tea plantations, thermal pools, fresh homemade cheese, bubbling sulphurous water, interesting tools, extraordinarily changeable weather.
