Be sure to follow Lizbef’s adventures at http://youtube.com/earlewrites! Lisa did an incredible job putting together this beautiful and a bit sad episode! The time has come for Lizbeth to say goodbye to Delos and start her new adventure in France. But before she leaves we have a great last Delos party as a family of six! Loads of laughs, Caipirinhas, singing and some naked swimming in the dark. Then it was time to say the sad goodbye 🙁 Wow Liz it has been a fantastic 6 month, 5000NM and 5 counties together! We Love you!!
Team edit with Leeesir, Killa Kiril, and Capt. Breeyawn! It’s a great mix of personality and beautiful nature! We kick off by celebrating Leesir’s birthday. She wanted to go hiking, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. YEAH says Lizbef 🙂 We end up having a party on Delos instead with lot’s of caipirinha’s followed by a Japanese inspired cooking marathon. YEAH says everyone 🙂 Up next we jump in a Jeep and take a 4×4 trail to the wild side of Ilha Bela, Castelhanos beach, where we encounter the raw beauty of the island and also the largest waterfall, over 70M (200 ft) high! Pretty soon it’s time to set sail for our next destination, so Capt. Breeyawn heads to the local marine store to sort out some parts, where he gets to practice his Portuguese skills with some success.
Brazilian CHURRASCO TIME!!! :). We decide to sail Delos to the other side of Ilha Bela, to some cruising grounds that look really sweet on the chart. At our first stop we get eaten alive by man-eating flies known locally as Borrachudos! We flee to another anchorage and take some time to reflect on what it means to live and work on a sailboat. We get an awesome message from some locals that want to host us for our very first Brazilian Churrasco! Not knowing what is in store for us we arrive to find a fridge full of steaks, cold bear, and we proceed to have one hell of a party. Thanks guys!
Bikinis and waterfalls in Brazil!! Yep we promised so here you go 🙂 He He! But before we head into the Brazilian jungle to seek out waterfalls…. Our new amigo Felipe drives us to the mainland to attempt checking in. It takes all day to navigate the Federal Police, Customs, and Navy offices but we finally are legally in Brazil with Delos! We get to experience our first Coxinhas and Brazilian street food which is frickin’ delicious. During our after passage clean Mr. Brady “solves” the mystery of the missing voice recorder. Nice try Mr. Brady but we were ahead of you every step of the way 🙂
