Ted Goes to Madeira – Day 6

DSC_0417Porto Moniz

Today’s trip was round to see the top of the island.  We saw some lava pools at Porto Moniz.  It was a lot cooler at the north of the island and quite windy.  I nearly blew off the wall!  We then went to a town called São Vicente to see some caves.  The caves were made when volcanoes erupted and the lava flowed down the tubes!  We found out lots of interesting information about how the island of Madeira was formed when the volcanoes erupted, but I didn’t like the caves much.  I like caves that have stalactites and stalagmites best and these had neither!
