Spending a day exploring the sights, sounds and smells of Funchal, the capital city and main port of Madeira, was a treat for all the senses.
One of the highlights of our brief time on this island, stuck out on its own in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, was a visit to the main market.
There was pretty much everything for sale there, including locally made embroidery and lace, and I couldn't resist this close up composition, highlighting the name 'Maderia' on a beautifully crafted cloth.
