Memories of Madeira

In 1952 I emigrated to South Africa and on the way the Union Castle boat docked at Madeira. The volcanic island did not have a deep water port at the time and because I was expecting I felt that descending the steep ladder down to the boats, which came out to pick up visitors, was too dangerous so I stayed on board. I always wanted to return and I did 55 years later in 2007. It was well worth the wait and was one of our best holidays.
