After packing this morning we had a swim in the heated indoor pool before checking out of our room at noon. It was warm enough to spend a couple of hours reading by the outdoor pool before driving to the airport.
We watched the planes taking off & landing on the very short runway at Funchal airport from an outside terrace - not recommended for the nervous flyer!
J bought three Agapanthus bulbs at the airport - they grow everywhere on Madeira; along every road, path and levada and must be an amazing sight when in bloom.
On landing at Manchester airport, just before midnight, we walked out into a snowstorm! But at least it isn't as cold as I expected. Staying at a hotel at the airport tonight before the drive home tomorrow.
