Docked Funchal, Madeira at 10am. Pop: 101,000. Went to the Tourism center for some info then had a coffee while organising our day. Warm and clear day. About 24 degrees.Caught the cable car for a long trip up the hill 10E each and had a picnic lunch in the beautiful Jardim tropical Monte gardens. 10E entrance. Wandered for a couple of hours; had a free tasting of madiera wine which tasted like sherry and caught the toboggan down. 12.50E each. From there we walked the steep straight road back down the rest of the hill, stopping for a local beer at a local bar. Had to run to get back to the ship by 5.30, arriving just 5 minutes late. Had an early tea then went to our room to watch movies. The Proposal, Mamma Mia and part of Batman.
Clocks forward 1 hour,
