Punta Delgada is our last port before reaching the United States. It is part of the Azores and owned by Portugal. This volcanic island been populated since 1444. We walked through the old town, visited a church and saw the most beautiful Bird of Paradise flowers growing everywhere.

The Azorian Pineapple, with its exquisite flavor, is grown here. As an export crop it cannot compete economically with other cheaper varieties. We visited a pineapple plantation where they make the most delicious pineapple liqueur. However, it is quite expensive, so we were happy with the sample we were given.

The highlight of our tour was looking down into Crater Lake from the top of the island along a volcanic rim. It was breathtaking.
