Our last week is intended as a time to unwind before returning to California - no schedules, no plans, no commitments. Yes, we made the right choice of destinations. Morro de São Paolo is a small island about two hours by fast boat from Salvador. Here there are no roads, only sand.
Arriving we are met by the "taxis" who transport our luggage from the boat with wheelbarrows along the beach. Our taxi driver, Aloisio, is amazing.
We have elected to stay at a resort of small cabañas in a grove of coconut trees where we are the only guest for much of the week, sharing our space with blue morpho butterflies, blue crabs, and an occasional monkey.
This is very close to paradise and we take full advantage of it.
At night, numerous bars are set up on the beach to mix drinks from fruits you have never even heard of. I´d better just leave it at that and toast to an amazing trip.............
