The Beautiful Sea

Around the end of October, we moved into our new house here. We waited almost exactly a month to get internet access, and the access is spotty. Somedays it doesn't work at all, and we still don't know why. We've done a lot in the past month. We've gotten to know some of our Portuguese neighbors, we've had lots of people over for dinner, we've discovered even more of our island, I've made lots of food, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving here at our house, we've seen lots of cows, and we've immensley enjoyed being in our house. I have two kitchens here! I'm getting reaquainted with gas cooking. And my oven (electric-yay) is so cute and tiny; I'll have to post a pic of it sometime.

I admit I have not been taking a lot of pictures lately. One day last month, we drove to the northwestern part of the island, to a town with jagged black lava formation on the beach, to watch the waves crash in. These waves were so huge (I've lived by ocean for 11 years of my life, and have never seen such big ones), and we took a lot of pics, but when we got home, we discovered that almost every single wave pic was terribly over-exposed. Darn that camera! We need a new one. We did get some cool pics of the ocean and rocks though, so I'll share those.



I love watching the ocean spray as the waves hit the rocks.


We passed this scene on the way home; the spray from the waves reached almost to the top of those cliffs!
