Ilha Grande 18032011 Thursday
The Village The Shop
Yves and family including the Rocky the dog come to visit and discuss the day’s plans when it’s decided to
move off later in the afternoon to a quieter bay away from the bustle of the tourist boats.
Everybody repairing waterpump Except Rocky
We go ashore to explore. The village is a maze of narrow sandy walkways through a jumble of small shops
one or two “main” roads are paved with large cobbles and bridges straddle the streams that run down to the sea.
A supply boat is being unloaded into hand carts which seem to be the only means of goods transport, no cars
no roads! Lars meanwhile has beached the dinghy and is busy removing the coating of barnacles and weed
that has accumulated over some months from its bottom.
Delivery Van Waterfront
We return to swim for while before setting of for a bay the other side of the headland. Having negotiated
the entrance we work our way into a nice anchorage off a sandy beach closely followed by our French friends
who moor a short distance away.
More swimming, socialising and having a good time. Its hell at sea!
