Our first steps on solid ground at Horta, Faial led us instinctively to Peter's Cafe Sport; the
world renown sailors' bar.
This year celebrates 100 YEARS during which Peter's Cafe Sport has been serving sailors, not only the most delicious gin-with-a-hint-of-passion-fruit & tonics, but also assisting sailors with money exchange, receiving/sending mail, general information, and weather forecasting. For 3-generations, Peter's has been the central hub in the Azores for ocean voyagers.
Above the bar, Peter's Cafe Sport houses the Scrimshaw Museum; a fabulous collection of art and history.
Surely, we didn't travel nearly 2,000 nautical miles just to visit a bar!?! Hmmm...one more G&T and I'll let you know!
