Madeira Cable Car


Take a trip in the Cable car with me - to to the mountains of Madeira -- here we go ------------------

 Wave to those folk coming down,lol.
 Some resturation work going on here it seems.

Up and over the motorways --
 Theres our ship - The Arcadia - also this is the road the open top bus used.

 Much quicker than the bus, whay-hey

 Swing high - swing low --
 Love these houses on the way up.
 Well - here we are at the top, what a sight eh!.
 This is a model of one of the cable cars -
 And what reflections it gives us too - lol.

Ah well - time to go back to the ship.
Hope you all enjoyed our time in Funchal in Madeira.

Not sure if you'd get me in one of those. Far too scary. But you've got some good shots from up high.

I am sooo jeleous! My husband would think he had died and gone to heaven! What amazing views! so beautiful!~ but...I would think that the trolley's would arrange the seating so that the weight would be evenly distributed like right down the middle with a glass bottom! now that would be awesome as well! But...hey I will never go on them anyway so whatever...lol

A great bird's eye view, Stewart ! Grand photos.

Perhaps they need to have concave windows on those cable cars - you'd gain a couple of feet in height ;-)

What fun! The motorways are like dark ribbons swirling around the landscape.

I sure am glad you took us along with you on the cable car. The views are stunning, although I have some reservations about the characters seen in the reflections from the model car.

How fun that must have been. Amazing views all the way up and definitely quicker than the bus would have been. I so want to go on another cruise. Its the best way to see the sights.
