Update on Lajes, Flores. The last 5 meters of the inside pier has collapsed, leaning towards the entrance channel into the marina. This will have to be broken and redone, no schedule has been set for it yet.
The longest pier that usually took 3 1/2 boats of 50 feet was damaged in this past winter and was taken out. This leaves only one space for a 50 foot boat in an almost 50 foot boat space. The only alternative 6 meter finger piers, 4 or 5 of them. Since construction there is still no allocated bathrooms for the marina. You must share a public bathroom that is also used by fisherman, and port goers. No hot water.
Still no diesel available in port. The restaurant that served refreshments to the sailors is closing the end of May.
Now a 10 minute walk up the hill is required for lunch and supermarkets.

First thing when you arrive and check in at this marina, ask the nice gentleman at immigration for a weather report compared to the shelter this port. He knows the particulars of the shelter (or lack thereof) vis-a-vis the weather in a way that larger weather forecasts cannot assess. He will tell you if it's safe to stay of if you should push on to a safer port.
