APRIL 2007: Sunset water mirror
Florianópolis, capital of the state of Santa Catarina is one of the three Brazilian state capitals that are located on an island. The capital is located in the center of Santa Catarina Island. From there, the distance to the northernmost part of the island is about 30 km. Next to the internationally renowned beaches at Jurerê, the fortress of São João da Ponta Grossa protected the island and the mainland from hostile invasions. After having visited the fortress, we visited the nearby beach: Praia do Forte. We were there just in time to witness a colorful and amazing sunset. Parts of the beach just had become dry after the high tide; the sun-colored clouds in the sky were mirrored in the remaining pools.
