Horta, the island of Faial, Azores.

As you can see it is a tradition to leave your mark in Horta.  We have spent time wandering up and down the quay reading the signs and hoping to find ones from one boats that we know.  We have found only four other boats that we know personally. Here I am in the middle of painting ours and the finished product is below. 
Just about every surface is covered with signs, the ideal on would be on the wall because this way it would last longer. We figured this space wasn't bad because at least it was on place where you would be seated and not be walked on all the time. I had to wait a few days between painting the blue and putting on the lettering because it has been pretty wet here, lots of high humidity and rain. 
I particularly liked the sentiment of this one. Still in great shape after 14 years.
