Brazil page 7
Our first stop... a lovely island. This area has over three hundred islands with over a thousand beaches between them. Many are privately owned. The beaches here are nicer than in Puerto Vallarta... There is even a "Club Med" which is strange... because I always thought the "med" bit was short for "Mediterranean" as in... that body of water between Europe and Africa.
It was a very relaxing day... we hung about the beach, we swam a bit and we lay about on the deck of the boat.
We even managed a bit of snorkeling... there were lots of fish... the great barrier reef still holds the top spot on my list of snorkelling destinations though.
Look! A llama! (cunningly disguised as a starfish)
"excuse me... I'm a little lost..."
and, as with any respectable touristy chartered boat.. there was a bar
...and we even got a fairly decent lunch.
One of the Islands that we stopped off at had a little church on it... with a really really tall tree next to it.
Yeah... no forced perspective trickery needed here... that is one tall mother of a tree!
Meanwhile, on one of the beaches, a silverfish and a swarm of ants do battle.
Oh, it must be so boring to be the staff on one of these boats. This shot reminds me a bit of the photo I took of some staff at the Louvre in Paris who just sat and looked out the window of a room filled with priceless masterpieces of renaissance art.
Our ship... with two masts... which are there for decorative purposes only.
