Ponta Delgada: A City by the Edge of the Atlantic

Igreja de São Sebastião in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel

I haven’t been in Ponta Delgada for a long time, but the city by the edge of the Atlantic surfaces in my memory almost daily. Who says that out of sight is out of mind! My experience is that “out of sight” keeps what I miss – in mind.

Here are a few random photos of good memories of walking in Ponta Delgada.

    The opposite of “Out of sight, out of mind” is “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” — which is part of what saudade is about.

    We haven’t been to the Azores since Fall 2018, and oh man do I miss the place!

    Emanuel, it’s time for a visit to Ponta Delgada. I’m tempted to attend the LSA conference that takes place there, starting June 28th, but I’m still not sure I can make it. I would love to go back…
