I know it is not in Uruguay but far north. Hope you don't mind the exception to this blog's geographical scope. It has beaches, at any rate. Lots of beaches. And -sometimes- it doesn't even rain!

Canasvieiras beach

There is a nice public market with funny middle-aged people doing their regular domino game and sipping coconut milk.

Fishing boats, so you don't really feel out of the place.

Fishing boats in Barra da Lagoa


  1. Nice shots. Looks like a great place to explore with the camera. Zooming in on the satellite view, it seems like quite a lot of the coast has been devoted parks.

  2. It is a great place for photography. They have established a national park in the east coast, in the Rio Vermelho area, to preserve the Atlantic Forest environment. Glad they did it!

  3. Some of us call it: "Floripa" =).
    Beautiful city! I enjoyed your pics!
