We finally arrived in Funchal, Madeira. I had booked an excursion to do the Cable Car, Toboggan ride, and wine tasting at the Madeira Wine Lodge. The Kates’ took a bus excursion around the entire island, and Priscilla went into town on her own. The Cable Car ride was enjoyable and then we had some free time in the City of Monte. The toboggan ride was exhilarating and everyone knows I do enjoy wine tasting. Now we’re back onboard and it will take us three days to go across the Mediterranean to the port for Rome (Civitavecchia). The movie War Horse is on the TV in our stateroom. Here’s a photo of me and a gentleman named, Peter, from Maryland, getting ready to go down the hill on our toboggan.
