Camped high and dry in the bush on the sand bank


Crossed Rio Para to a lovely sandbank
Pos: here
Loc: Punta do Carmo
Acc: tent
Dist: 37,2 km
Start: 7:10 End: 15:55

I was wondering why Gelderson was asking me if I’d rather like to start from the river close to Soure, as we would have to carry the gear far from the car, and if I’d need a second man to help? No, I can’t remember it was that far? But when we arrived – sure I forgot it was low tide now and I arrived on high tide…

But a friendly policeman waved us to drive right on the beach to the water’s edge. Thanks! I noticed my driver Cavallo didn’t trust the sand, but in this case I did and I directed him to an easily accessible spot with a hard surface. He was as usual amazed what fit all inside the boat, but it wasn’t even full yet…

Then I had to decide how to cross – shortest distance was my choice, the wind was low, it was on mid moon cycle with least tidal difference and I just headed across with not much current or waves. The main current was at the last few km, where I got a bit washed in before I could head to the sandy beach I had already picked on the satellite map. Probably the only one on this side in this area. I was not 100% sure about it from the picture, and it may disappear on a spring tide, but not now. Still I camped with the back to the forest on the highest spot, you never know.

The sand bank on low tide


High tide is at 3 am, 30 cm lower than this day. Should be all good. The bush is smelling so nice! Still many bugs, and the sweat is running down allover my body inside the tent. I forgot to bring my air conditioner!
