Found it wallon1 found Underwater Fumarole [Sao Miguel - Azores]

Friday, 11 December 2015Arquipélago dos Açores, Portugal

Well, I did it. I dipped my feet in hot spring. Somebody had told us earlier - just dip and don't move your legs. Why? I moved and ... ohhhhhhhhhh? How hot!!!!!!!!!!!!! And camera felt into the hot spring; fortunately, it can swim but I didn't know whether in hot water. Fish said that it was 42 C deg.

A young man came with his wife and baby. He was born on Sao Miguel and had left for Canada as three-month-baby. Now, after twenty years, he visited Azores with his baby to dip his legs in hot spring. I warn him, but he moved his legs and then he was... 0hhhhhhhhhhh? How hot!!!!!!!!!!! His wife, French, dipped her legs and... sitting frozen for a few minutes as Niobe, with open mouth and frozen sreaming. The baby was withdrawn without a chance to test; she/he would came back within twenety years with his/her own baby to try.

TFTC and for the one of the most exciting experience during that trip to Sao Miguel.

Fish said that it was...... pretty good for babies?!!! So sad fish - it could "say" more degrees.
