Winter beach…

We finally made it to the beach today. It has been unusually cold by Rio standards since I got here Saturday, with intermittent sun. This afternoon the sun was out in force was so we decided to go to Camboinhas, one of Niterói’s beaches.  IMG_5794 (683x1024)camboinhas_5752 (1024x318)camboinhas_5762 (1024x683)We got there at around 16:00, but it was windy and a little chilly so we only stayed an hour and a half or so. Still, the view toward Rio is absolutely gorgeous. Tomorrow we’ll head back after breakfast.camboinhas_5767 (1024x282)In the detail below of the shot above, you can see all the Rio topographical landmarks: Pedra da Gávea, Dois Irmãos, Corcovado, Pão de Açucar. Rio is beautiful from all angles.IMG_5767 (1024x318)Tomorrow afternoon we head to Teresópolis. Friday, the usual gang is scheduled to show up. I can’t wait.
