    Waterfalls

    June 16, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    What a splendid day! The girls were up early and went spotting Tucanos and little monkeys in the eucalyptus trees a short distance away. We went for breakfast in a little cafe in town before heading out from the bottom end of town to the nearby cachoerias de Lochainios.
    At the entrance was a bird feeder with several colourful birds visiting. The park contains two boardwalks, one busier with better waterfalls, the other quieter and more beautiful. We went up the first and the girls went in for a dip. We were visited by little monkeys who enjoyed a banana on our seat back. Up the other side we found a great place for picnic lunch with several more exotic birds including a Helmeted Manakin, black with red helmet. At the top was another waterfall though with less water; most tranquil.
    Later we visited Cachoerias da Lua, with curious moonlike rocks through which the river flows.
    We ate delicious pizza di Debora in Sao Jorge before driving back half an hour for an earlyish night.
