Acores

Just a few little miles to sail,
On our lee the island of Flores, Faial is on our bow,
Full moon´s light fills the sky,
Tres Hombres sailing nicely full and by.

Navigating between volcanoes on the Mid Atlantic Ridge,
Beautiful archipelago with a climate that´s unique.

Due to winds and ocean currents,
A stopping place for many sailing ships,
From India, from far East,from Africa, South America and the Caribbean,
On their way towards the European continent.

Is this the old Atlantis….  are we entering the new?
