Saturday morning in Resende, RJ, Brazil and what is our favorite thing to do when we stay in this city?
Get our tan on by the pool of course! Soaking in some rays feels so nice BUT big problem now that it is Fall. The pool hours must be shorter because the life guard didn’t show until 10:30 this morning and by then most of the sun time in the pool area is over. Because it is Fall heading into Winter next month, there is sun from about 8am until 1pm at the pool. Well from about 8-9:30 it’s cold, well I think it’s cold ( 22 degrees) and then the sun shifts so there is only so many sun areas on our balcony and at the pool. On our balcony we only have sun now from 8 am until almost 10am. Anyway…by the time the lifeguard showed up David & I weren’t convinced it was gonna be warm enough to bare down to our bikinis and we opted to go shopping downtown, our second favorite thing on a Saturday morning. I say morning because as you’ve heard me mention before, stores and shops close their doors anywhere from noon til 2pm for the rest of the day on Saturdays.
It’s such a nice walk along the river from our place or we take an alternate route through the city and across the bridge so that we can browse in all the shops. Lots of fun! I am so happy David enjoys doing this, most men don’t like to shop.
We picked up a few things we needed, had fun looking around, even bought a couple clothes items. BUT most of all we just enjoyed our morning together!
Did you know there was a full moon tonight?
