Besides the flying sand through my tent mesh and the hot sun I had not much
to suffer at my beach camp at the end of busy Jericoacoacara. Few
beachwalkers kept their distance, and I felt allright in my sweat.

I was watching yesterday suspiciously the tide going out and the about 500m
wide shallow sandy reef going mostly dry in the afternoon. If I want to
launch tomorrow with first light at 5 am and it is quite dry in last light
now…well, some dragging will be the option.

The landscape changed slowly, now it’s back to the shallow river systems.
More green on the coast, even some mangroves at the river entrances! So did
change the fishing boats. Not those stand-on-top surfboard like wide floats
with the symmetrical triangle sail any more, rather real hollow boats
again.

When you hear a loud pffffffff while you are lying nicely relaxed on your
inflatable sleeping pad…you may be thinking you were hitting a fat thorn
in the ground and your pad goes flat – or rather the kitesurfer next door
is just pulling the plug.
