214. Cyclist on the beach
AUGUST 2009: Cyclist on the beach
Brazil hosts many beautiful beaches, which truly may be called beach paradises. One of these paradises is Maragogi Beach, located in the small state of Alagoas, between the cities of Maceió and Recife, capital of Pernambuco state. Maragogi is best known for the tidal sandbanks and reefs, which can be admired by snorkeling. At that time, I didn’t participate in a tour to the reefs and shoals, but I remained on the beautiful, wide beach instead. I started a long beach walk, which carried out southward to the mouth of a river which flowed into the Atlantic. Then I walked back towards the north, and I continued the walk for at least ninety minutes more. From time to time, I gave my legs some rest, while sitting down on the fine sands, and enjoying the beautiful views. Suddenly, my eye fell on a cyclist. It was both strange and very funny to observe someone trying to stay on his bike while wheeling on the loose sand.
