On my last blog, I was unable to post photos due to my iPad not connecting with the Wifi. I’m happy to say that it’s working better now, so here are some photos of Ilha Grande…
Our first view of the town of Abraao, basically the only town on Ilha Grande
Praia Preta, aka the Black Sand Beach (the black sand comes from quartz deposits)
Sunset begins on the beach
Nighttime on the beach
The next day’s hike (aka Death March) to the beautiful Lopes Mendes Beach
Bamboo along our hike – I guess they’re not only indigenous to China!
One of the beaches we passed (Praia Palmas) to get to Lopes Mendes
After a 6.6km hike, it was so nice to walk out onto the beautiful sands of Lopes Mendes Beach!

Toes enjoying the beautiful crystal blue waters (until they started getting numb, that is!)
