A lovely landing inside a small river


Highlights: Crossed seven river mouth!
Lowlights: landed 1 km too early, launched again
Launch: Low to moderate surf
Landing: Eventually sheltered river beach
Pos: here
Loc: small river
Acc: tent
Dist: 66,5 km
Start: 4:50 End: 16:15

Not a single person to be seen all afternoon and night, good. But this lovely shady pine tree tent site was full of nasty horse flies! Nothing about a walk on the beach as planned. A shady spot is actually rather what I need anyway after all day being exposed to the sun. The tent is the beat place to relax.

I launched easy with barely a drop in my face through low to moderate surf. Sometimes it goes…Three times two close to each other river mouth I had to cross today, and they were all different.I can’t remember any more which one I took in which way, but all of them had at least one sudden “Out of nothing” just a bit too high breaker, but just low enough to handle. Always a bit scary…

My destination was around this loading bridge, which was actually already way more than 50 km. But I some how liked to have this artificial piece of technique behind me. I dared to paddle between a tied up monster of ship and the small breakwater island, no one saw me or shouted at me. But they were busy unloading. Right after the bridge, it looked like the beach was all private farm land with houses, and the beach was steep all the time since the last river mouth. Possible, but very unfriendly to land. I had marked a reef shelter another 7 km away, and as the wind was good, I paddled along. The first small headland seemed to do the job with a bit of shelter, although my GPS said it was one more km away. Why am I always so impatient? I made a horrible inelegant landing getting washed on my ass up the beach and the cockpit full of sand water. It was not a great campsite either, and I saw the real reef shelter on the not far away next tiny head land. Many people there, but who cares…to punish myself, I launched right again, this time a bit better, and paddled even further than the next tiny headland, spotting a small river mouth around the corner. Perfect for me and my privacy needs.

It was really a lovely spot, just that the tourist from the other corner suddenly all showed also up here…some even waded across the shallow river to my”private” side! Can’t help…still a good spot, and now it’s all mine! Well, besides two stray dogs hopefully not peeing on my tent again…

No idea where I will end up tomorrow…I urgently need to shop, refill water, recharge batteries and be online. Shower and washing machine wouldn’t hurt either. But I have not enough batteries to research a pousada or such now.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Too bad on under estimated trashy landings.A cockpit full of sandy water sucks.Hopefully you’ll get your restocking and refreshing soon.Its a little late in this trip but there are some great solar battery chargers available.I’ve got my eye on a good looking one by Aspect Solar.Safe Paddling

Use your beautiful smile, and all the sympathy that gathered in northeastern Brazil, and ask for help!
I am kiding.
You are in Bahia, land of good will and joy. Do not worry.

Look for him, and follow safe.
