    Brancas i Cachoeira Sao Bento

    June 15, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We rose early and were picked up at 7.30 to go back and take breakfast with Fernando. He wished to have a talk with Fran & Debs.
    After breakfast we went for a walk to another lake on the estate while others meditated and chatting occurred. Later there was time to sketch, read and watch the birds tucking into the avocado. Before we left Fernando took us by car to Morra de Prece, a viewing point with extraordinary panorama over the deep valley and hills into the far distance.
    We had an excellent lunch at Crave e Canale again then drove the short distance to Sao Bente. Here there was a 3km walk to the falls, much along a boardwalk through the forest, where many trees were identified though birds were scarce. We did though hear an owl.
    At the falls the waters were deemed too chilly for a dip. Just up the path though were hammocks from which to view the dusk descend and the nearly full moon.
    Evening meal accompanied by singer / guitar was a fitting end to a quite different day.
