Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

we paddled this traditional local canoe across the body of water pictured in the original picture to the base of the mountain.



and later, we ran to the nearest town in this boat, typical of the area, to get some cold reward beers.

Baia do Guanabara?

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Baia do Guanabara is a bit much crowded, so it must be Ilhabela, 50 miles south of Angra do Reis

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Saco do Mamangua it is. Good work, Copa. I thought I would throw a curve and post a picture that was only a few miles away from donjuan's pervious post of Angra dos Reis--in the original picture, my cousin is looking toward Angra in the distance. The cruising at the western end of Bahia Isla Grande is spectacular and Paraty is a nice town from which to base yourself.

you're up, copa

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Obelisk, it wasn't really fair as I spend at least 2 months every year in and around Saco do Mananguá. It is indeed a lovely area to cruise. In keeping with the theme, here is a small port nearby that is quite unique because it was designed in the 18th century so that the high tide would cover the streets and wash them on the receding tide.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Last attempt... if the photo doesn't load, I pass the torch back to Obelisk (who would have recognized the port anyway!).

Still in Brazil? may be Salvador do Bahia?

Nope. Too far away. I said "nearby".
