David & I needed a relaxing beach day and somehow driving 2 hours to go to the beach doesn’t seem too bad anymore! I used to think we had the nicest beaches in Nova Scotia Canada, and don’t get me wrong, they are AMAZING! Nova Scotia isn’t called “Canada’s Ocean Playground” for nothing. But…we have come to really love the beaches here in Brazil, especially Rio. And even though they are all very nice for many and various reasons, we keep going back to Copacabana the most. And the way we look at it…It’s not everyday that you get to enjoy the sun on a beach in Brazil, South America. We are making the most of our time here!
Up and at it early to beat the traffic in to Rio!
On the beach by 9:30 am, not too bad! And it was a gorgeous day. A nice little breeze blowing off the water and temperatures are definitely getting warmer now that we are soon in to Spring here. It doesn’t take long to feel the heat’s intensity and start getting some color, so we try to be careful and stay well hydrated. ( although today we both got a little crispy)
4 hours is more than plenty of sun on a hot day so we left the city at 2pm to beat the traffic again.
It was a nice Saturday afternoon drive home. We were back in Resende by 4:30pm. Not too bad!
There’s nothing like a day at the beach that makes you feel so good, I am so happy that David is a beach person too! Now that this post is done, I’ve got to make dinner and then maybe we’ll watch a movie. Hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!
