Boat Watching

Our window opening out onto the river in Itubera – perfect for spectating boats and jet skis. If the boys were a bit older we may have been wondering why they were so interested in this boat called The Three Sisters 🙂


Our lunchtime visitors today included this man and his horse – laden with cacao.

Food Design


While looking for a place to stay in Itacare Da invited us to stay with her family. Actually from the US now living in Brazil for a year she blogs about food design (check out her site) while her husband Christian does his PhD studies about the environmental development of this now hot surf & skate place.

Hill Massivo!

Julie – defeated by one of the hills in the very beautiful Serra Grande – thanks Jean Paulo for your assistance!
