It is a tradition in the Azores for visiting yachts to paint their names on the concrete walls of the marina. A lot of boats pass through here – some on their way across the Atlantic and some just come out from Europe or the UK, stay awhile, and then return. The walls are covered with the names of yachts from around the world. We were encouraged to add our name to the wall, and we did. We painted this before we left Flores, so we are now a permanent part of the Flores, Azores marina!
