A most yummy barbecue lunch with a bunch of friends. My hosts Alan and Nina to the left.


trip days left: 62
distance left: 1317 km
Highlights: Great food!
Lowlights: nothing really
Loc: Sao Francisco do Sul
Acc: Alan and Ninas house

I prepared today the last leg of my trip. Four more paddling days to Florianapolis, some big food shopping to do there. Four more days to Cabo Santa Marta, where the endless beach without sheltered landing is starting. After 125 km I could haul over into t long chain of small lagoons for saving about 110 km of surf beach. But I think I will skip this effort and deal with the surf.

After 235 km after Cabo Santa Marta on the unprotected beach and the last food shopping in Brazil I could carry over in the first of two connected large lagoons where I could save 500 km of unprotected coast by paddling inland. This portage option looks more inviting regarding the unstable windy weather in this area. I would end up right in the boarder village of Chuy to sign out of Brazil and to enter Uruguay. I probably will do that lagoon paddle, but am not sure yet.

Then it will be about two weeks of paddling in Uruguay, and I will be DONE!!! I added a countdown to my trip account on the beginning of each blog entry…

For tomorrow, I can start late for th 40 km back to the sea via the river, as high tide inland is at 2 pm, and the river rounding the island is actually interrupted by the highway. It is not a bridge how I was originally thinking, but a full locking dam, and the north-western side of the river is becoming fully dry on low tide. At high tide there is about a meter of water in the deep channel a kayak can navigate with care. The south eastern side is always deep enough, ending at the sea. You can see the different water colors on the sat images. Basically easy paddling with good timing, but I have to look for the deeper water!

Thanks to Alan and Nina hosting mein Sao Francisco do Sul!

Hello excellent blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a large amount of work?
I’ve very little knowledge of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have
any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off subject but I simply had to ask. Cheers!


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

Good to see you enjoying good company and eating well.I think for myself I would also consider the inner lagoon for the longer remaining section, to avoid the winds and ease your days paddling efforts, plus there’s likely to be more of a change of scenery inland from what you’ll have seen for so many days along the straight coastline in days ahead.Safe Paddling.
