jardim da alameda & ilha de faro
Wednesday 2nd of September.
After breakfast under the lemon tree we went to the harbour to buy the tickets for the ferry to Faro Island. Because there are only a few tickets available each hour, you have to make sure to book the tickets in time and also have to tell in front which ferry you want to take back. So you have to decide in advance, how many hours you want to stay on the island.
On our way to the harbour, we had a walk through the Alameda João de Deus Garden around the corner of our street. Something between a small botanical garden and a city park. We had coffee and cake on the terrace at the 'quiosque' in the park. The gardners were pruning the palm trees and the place was covered with beautiful huge palm leaves. I even considered to bring one home, but it was to big for my suitcase.
