We arrived at our pousada around 10:30.
We immediately went out to the deck area. It was quite a view.Then we met Monique. As you can see, her life is so rough, she has to sleep on the couch in the lobby.
It was sprinkling when we arrived so we decided to head into town and get a bite to eat and shop. We settled on pizza.The pizza was to die for. We had roasted red peppers on one side with onion. It was so awesome.
Weenie got gnocchi. The red sauce might be the best I've ever had.
After shopping we decided it was time for some cocktails. We walked down the boardwalk and settled on a little bar that overlooked the ocean.
In Brazil, they don't have juices as mixers. So, you can't order a cranberry and vodka. You pick your fruit and your alcohol. Here, we all ordered Absolut and pineapple. The bartender took a pineapple, peeled it, put it in a shaker with some sugar and mashed it up. Then he poured vodka until his arm was tired and then poured it into a high ball glass. Delicious!
That night we decided to have Thai food. Luciano had recommended this place. He did not disappoint.
Weenie ordered sake and it came in a box.
I stepped outside to get a snapshot of the sunset.
My dish was so great that I could not stop eating it.
Then next morning when we woke up it was sunny. We went down for some breakfast. Here is the view from the dining room.
Time for the beach! We had rented a jeep to get us around so we loaded it up and headed to João Fernandinho Beach. We walked down and chose an umbrella.
Banana daiquiri.The chairs and umbrella were free if we agreed to eat at their cafe. While we were sunbathing, our server brought out the catch of the day for us to choose from. We chose the red grouper (in the middle).
While waiting on lunch to be prepared, Mooey and I went snorkeling. The water was very clear and we saw all kinds of things.
Mooey took my camera out by herself and snapped this giant blowfish! He is so cool!
View from our table.Here is the grilled grouper. It was unbelievable.
Then it was back to sunbathing.
Weenie took a spill, but as you can see, the beer was saved.
Beer was served in large bottles and they came with these sleeves that kept them cold until you finished.
Mooey and I were sick the entire trip. Here is a smattering of our meds.
Mooey ordered a passion fruit drink. It was tasty.
It was Thanksgiving night so we decided to go to the most popular restaurant. It's called David's.
I ordered a sausage appetizer.
Mooey order kale soup.
