Serving South Florida's Coastal Neighborhoods DECEMBER 2012 YEAR 3 ISSUE 6 A South Florida fishing tale .......................... 3 Where to dock and dine ............................... 9 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 17 € Event Calendar 12 € Galley 8 € Tide Table 13 EILEEN SOLER For Waterfront Times South Florida boaters are decking the hulls to ring in the 2012 holiday season tropical style on the water, under the moonlight, with millions of brilliant lights, in a series of festive floating parades. "It's the way South Florida welcomes the holidays. It's our Macy's (Thanksgiving Day) parade," said Lisa Spinelli, special events director for the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, which puts on the Pompano Beach Boat Parade. It's become as traditional as snowmen and cozy sweaters "up north." The Pompano Beach Boat Parade, this year marking its 50th anniversary on Dec. 8, was the first of its kind in Florida. The 2012 grand marshals, Richard and Gwen Leys, have been key organizers for the past 10 years. "The first time we saw the Pompano parade it was 1993," Gwen Leys said. "We just came from up north and were used to the Philadelphia way of celebrating the ARNOLD MARKOWITZ For Waterfront Times Uh-oh, the manatees are back. Better slow down. We've devoted a lot of space previously to reporting new and enlarged speed zones on the Intracoastal Waterway. Time now to tell of seasonal special regulation areas that are meant to protect those sea cattle, who go there looking for water warmer than their toleration limit of 68 degrees F. If you live on a canal that connects to the ICW, you'll see manatees soon if you haven't already. Even if that place isn't a designated manatee haven, you still have to avoid bumping them here and everyplace else you cruise or fish. Diane Hirth of the FWC tips us off that Broward County speed zones ordinarily activated only on weekends are in effect every day in cold season. She also quotes Kipp Frohlich, head of FWC's imperiled species management, saying this: "Many manatees in Florida have scars from run-ins with boats. We can do our part to help by complying with slow-speed and no-entry zones that indicate manatees may be in the area. Boaters should slow down where manatees like to congregate, such as seagrass beds and warm-water sites." Manatee avoidance involves a lot of rubber-necking. Appoint a mate who can eyeball from port to starboard and back for signals like flat, circular swirls on the surface. That means a manatee is just below. Use poles, paddles or electric trolling motors, not your big engine when you're near manatees. FWC offers these other manatee safety tips for boaters: Stay in marked channels while under way. Wear polarized sunglasses to cut surface sun glare. Obey posted speed limits. Now for a few tips of our own to fishing-doers: When you move off the channel to the flats (not those designated no-entry), turn off and trim your big engine up. Most electric trolling motor props won't harm a manatee, but run it at low speed to make sure. When manatees pop only their faces out of the water, they can be mistaken for seals or otters by people who haven't seen either in quite a while. Instead of wasting time wondering which it is, sing out "Manatee at 2 o'clock!" You'll hardly ever be wrong. Fishing-doers who motor upland looking for snook (they also hate cold water) might be fooled by what appears to be a large, smooth underwater boulder or small sandbar that wasn't there last time. Or was it? Rather than motor close for a better look, motor away in the belief it's a manatee. You'll hardly ever be wrong. Here are the special regulation zones for MiamiDade and Broward counties: Broward to March 31 Idle speed: Port Everglades Power Plant area. Portions of the South New River Canal and Dania Cut-off holidays. As soon as we saw the beautiful lights on the boats winding through the waterway, there was no question that we'd become involved." The couple joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary and entered the chapter's boats in the parades. Later they became boat captains and entered their own boat. Now they serve on the boat parade committee. This season, 74 boat parades are scheduled on waterways throughout the state. A dozen will take place from Key West to Jupiter in north Palm Beach County. The Winterfest Boat Parade on Dec.15 is the largest and most popular. With an estimated 1 million spectators, the event is ranked 20 of more than 50,000 parades that occur on land or water annually in the United States. The nationally televised event features about 200 boats and a string of celebrities. Deborah Norville, 17year anchor for "Inside Edition," is this year's grand marshal. Past grand marshals have included Regis Philbin, Kim Kardashian, Shaquille O'Neal and Jim Belushi. Corporate-sponsored vessels get show-stopping professional designs. Parade-goers can expect to see fireworks, dancing dolphins, swaying palm trees and merry manatees amid Christmas elves, Santas and candy canes. Some boat parades are more homespun. Sue Finney, who is organizing the laid back and always fun Key Largo Boat Parade on Dec. 8, said about 30 festooned big and small boats will light Blackwater sound between mile markers 103 and 104. "We can always get more boats signed up before Dec. 8 because everyone is welcome. It's a Keys thing: the more the merrier," Finney said. Some boaters start decorating before Thanksgiving while others wait until the last day. For competition sake, secret designs are kept hush-hush. Spinelli said viewers will likely see new entries this season. In mid November, the chamber hosted a boat decorating workshop at Lowe's in Pompano Beach. About a dozen folks new to the parade scene showed up for free tips about wrapping a boat in lights, generator safety and basic decorating. "The more lights the better," Spinelli said. Spectators should make their viewing plans now. Hotels and restaurants along bays and rivers that feed into the Intracoastal Waterway fill up fast, with reservations required. Parking at county and city parks along parade routes can make for a harried experience. Bring your own folding chairs and blankets. Most parades are free to attend, but preferred seating could cost a few dollars. Finney, who has attended the Key Largo Boat Parade for the last 20 years, said ringing in the holidays at a boat parade is worth the trip. Every year the parades get bigger and better. "We don't have snow and the rest of wintry stuff, but we do have the water, the weather and the boats to start the holidays in real Florida style," Finney said.

On the way to the door, I took the call. It was Borracho, the November bartender at the Upper Keys Fish or Cut Bait Society. "You're beer chairman this month, right?" he asked."We're running low. Hurry!" The beer chairmanship is crucial in our outfit. The ideal candidate's best attributes are availability, energy, sobriety and a high sense of responsibility. That's why there's never a candidate. We have to take turns. I was ready for Borracho's call, my garage stacked with cases and kegs like those old shack bars on Bimini. I just needed some help with loading, and there it stood, or stooped, at the back door. Our neighbor, Augustus Kalashnikov, 47, was staggering under the weight of a bulgy gunnysack. He looked kind of desperate the election, you know so I tried to lighten the mood. "If that's your excess Halloween loot, no thanks. Candy gives me pimples," I said. "Shut up and turn off the light," Kalashnikov whispered. "This isn't funny." In the dark, I asked what was in the gunnysack. "My gunnies," he said, still whispering. "I need you to hide these for me before They come and pry them from my cold, dead hands." Okay, that explained sneaking to the back door in the dark but not the urgency. I poured Kalashnikov a snort to settle his nerves and reminded him that he'd been fretting about this since before the last election and They hadn't come for his gunnies yet. Whoever "They" are. "O'Bama's men," he whispered, emphasizing the apostrophe. Kalashnikov believes the president is not an authentic American but an undercover Irishman, born in Glocca Morra and smuggled into the U.S. with counterfeit papers in case he's busted in Phoenix. "Have you noticed his ears?" Kalashnikov asked. "They prove he's part leprechaun." A.K., as his pals know him, was pretty agitated so I invited him to help me load and unload the beer and help us all drink it at the clubhouse. That would calm him down. We'd hide his gunnies and figure out his next move while he guzzled on my tab. The joint was full and able-bodied men abundant, so the beer was unloaded quickly. By the time I parked and went in, Kalashnikov was darting around, introducing himself the way I did it back there in paragraph five. "Augustus Kalashnikov, forty-seven," he'd say. "You can call me A.K." "What's his age got to do with it?" Borracho asked me. "Or is that his graduation year?" Neither, I explained. A.K.'s 47th birthday was a long time ago, but it amuses him to add the number to his name because he thinks it scares liberals. I'm afraid he's right, but I'm not sure who's liberal and who's not. One of the signs on the club's walls says, "Let's not talk politics. Ladies may be present." We waive that rule only on election days. A.K.'s gunnysack was hidden in the back room, not that anyone would care if they knew. We're a diverse, tolerant, welcoming group founded by my long-ago daily newspaper colleague and boating-fishing guru, sometimes described as "the late Jim Martenhoff." That's a gross slander; Jim was always on time. Before we took it over, the clubhouse was an oldfashioned waterfront ginmill patronized by carousing hoi polloi and riffraff. Ghosts who swoop by for old times' sake don't notice much difference. Beer labels have changed no more Schaefer or Piels and notices of behavioral admonition have been removed or modified to omit the word "no" because fishing-doers refuse to read signs like that. For example, the old "No Profanity" sign at the end of the bar now says, "Please avoid profanity. Ladies may be present." The poker and pool tables are tagged, "Please don't gamble. Ladies may be present." Mindy Palabrota, the only lady present, was cussin' up a storm in Spanglish when I brought A.K. over. She caught him glancing at the profanity sign and spoke sharply: "I'm talking Cuban slang and it's obscene, not profane." Kalashnikov asked Mindy if she's worried about losing her freedom of speech with that Irish impostor in office. "Not unless he outlaws lozenges," she said. Laughing out loud, Mindy and I attempted a high five but she missed and smacked me on the nose. Everybody else laughed. At the card table, A.K. joined a few guys who were kicking around ways they might react to the election, A fishing tale of two different presidential elections SEE FISHING | PAGE 4 FISHING

Somebody said they should have read him Satchel Paige's warning, "Never look back. Something may be gaining on you." Somebody else turned up the volume on the teevy. Mitt was on. "It's over," he was saying. On the way home, Kalashnikov told me he wants to take up fishing. He thinks it will relieve his unnatural inclination to stress, and he can hide his gunnies at the clubhouse until O'Bama's men move on to other projects. *Stark Raving Crazy. The author will receive compliments and denunciations at witzfish@att.net. ed in these tats but I'll tell you this: The best skin artists in Florida depend on me. Talk about job killing!" I was beginning to think it was a mistake to bring Kalashnikov there, until I saw a crowd in a circle, listening to secrets that only someone like him could know. He was telling the guys how the losing presidential candidate got that strange first name. "His parents were huge baseball fans," A.K. was saying," altogether seriously. "They hoped he would grow up to be a famous player, full of wisdom like Yogi Berra, so they bought him a little catcher's mitt and named him after it. Instead of the adventures of Uncle Wiggily the famous rabbit or The Hardy Boys, they read Yogi's sayings and observations to young Mitt every night constructively or destructively. In both categories, some admirably extravagant conspiracies were under consideration. Kalashnikov suggested that before committing to anything like that they should consult with his hero and congressman, Col. Paskudnyak (SRC*, ret.), who was in a tight race for re-election that very night. "Better hold off on contacting Paskudnyak," said Bob Windward, who was watching the news. "They're still counting votes in his district and he's behind. He could lose." You remember Windward, right? The investigative sailor who brought down a dishonest commodore and all his officers? That's him. No matter which party's in power, Bob has Washington sources like you wouldn't believe and some like you would believe. Well, everybody except Heavy Harley, the illustrated man. We call him that for his spectacular body art, which he displays by always wearing an open vest. Schools of frantic bait, with marlin and sailfish in pursuit, dart and leap up his left arm and down the right. Bonefish and tarpon encircle his neck, lurking behind shoulder-long hair. It's rumored that Japanese seafood buyers bid thousands for the tuna so realistically tattooed on Harley's big belly. All those are authentic unlicensed forgeries of Guy Harvey, Jorge Martinez and Cary Chen's best art only better because when Harley jiggles, his tattooed predators appear to leap to action. He wiggles and spectators rooting for the baitfish cry, "Swim for your lives!" After talking with Kalashnikov, Harley was near tears. "A.K. said the president's going to take away my constitutional right to bare arms," Harley told me. "That would be economically devastating. You know how many long-sleeved shirts I own? Zero, that's how many. I don't have a wardrobe budget. "You don't want to know how much I've got investThe right to bare arms in a downtrodden economy craft. www.winterfestparade.com; 954-767-0686.

Specializing in the Diving Industry the reasonable ordinary care recognized under controlling maritime law. Disagreeing with the cruise line, the 11th Circuit cited several lower and intermediate federal court decisions that recognized "that a cruise line owes its passengers a duty to warn of known dangers beyond the point of debarkation in places where passengers are invited or reasonably expected to visit." The 11th Circuit also determined that the question of whether the dangers encountered by the deceased passengers were foreseeable and required warning by the cruise line was a matter for further discovery. As such, the lower court's dismissal was reversed and the case was remanded for further litigation. While it seems that lower courts in Florida have heard and accepted cases built around a cruise line's duty to warn of dangers beyond the vessel, this appears to be the first time the 11th Federal Circuit has ruled on it. The judicial jurisdiction of a federal circuit court encompasses several states and the decision of one circuit can impact the decisions of other circuits as well as lower courts in other regions. So, the cruise line may be correct in thinking of this ruling as an expansion of the duty to warn doctrine. Courts do seem to like it when people are warned of dangers in advance. So with that in mind, just in case you miss my column next month because the Mayans turned out to be right, remember, you've been warned! Otherwise, happy holidays! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist It's that time again when most of us are preparing for the holidays. But wait your shopping spree just might be premature and even unnecessary. According to some interpretations of the ancient Mayan calendar, the year 2012 will mark the end of the world, with the slated date being Dec. 21. If the Mayans (or those interpreting their calendar) prove correct, wasting time and money preparing for Christmas should probably be delayed closer to Dec. 25. Or you might want to consider one large party before the "end of time," and forget all about Christmas. On the other hand, if you celebrate Hanukkah, sorry guys, you're stuck since the holiday starts the evening of Dec. 8, early enough that you'll have to deal with it whether the world ends or not. Of course, while it is quite possible that the end of the world is still a ways off, despite the insistence of some doomsayers and a John Cusack film, at least you can now say that you've been warned. Our legal system likes it when people get warned. This is one reason why you see so many labels on items like ladders explaining under what conditions it shouldn't be used, or on what type of surface it cannot be placed. While the text may seem like simple common Theholidays,world's endconveniently timed sense, such warnings exist because a court in some district determined that a failure to provide such information could result in a finding of liability against a manufacturer or seller of the item. Under certain circumstances, the duty to warn exists for cruise lines and the dangerous situations their passengers might encounter. And a recent ruling by the 11th Federal Circuit Court may have expanded this obligation. The case in question concerns the death of two cruise line passengers who were shot and killed due to crossfire from rival gangs while riding in an open-air tour bus in a "bad neighborhood" in the Virgin Islands. Although the excursion was independent of any cruise line sponsorship, it was said that the victims were in that area because of a suggestion from an unidentified cruise line employee. The family of the victims filed suit against the cruise line in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Among their allegations was the claim that the cruise line negligently failed to warn passengers of potential dangers in crime-ridden neighborhoods at the port of destination. The district court dismissed the case, stating the family's allegations were "conclusory and insufficiently factual." When the family took the matter on appeal to the 11th Federal Circuit, the cruise line argued that they were seeking a heightened duty of care that exceeded ADMIRALTY LAW Seasons Greetings from the Waterfront Times!

Lauderdale € 33315 M a s t e rC a r d Put another way, it looks like a plan to reduce alreadylow bag limits for the most popular sporting species and to encourage catch and release fishing for some of them, but not all, without necessarily requiring it. A draft rule initiating such a plan is on the Commission's agenda for its meeting at Apalachicola on Wednesday, Dec. 5. If adopted, it could change the keeping limits for a few species redfish, snook, tarpon, bonefish, permit and all the billfish of which only one or two specimens can be kept per day now, but maybe none at all later on for some of those. Then again, maybe not. The idea could be viewed as more complicated than it's worth, but FWC's already managing sea trout, snook and permit regionally with zoned differences in seasons and limits. So far it seems able to live with those complications. The gamefish classification might include snook, redfish and spotted seatrout, which are mentioned as possibilities. Limited keepage would be allowed, which it already is: one snook a day, one or two redfish depending on the zone. Among all the fish mentioned for either game or sport classification, only the seatrout presently has liberal catch limits four, five or six a day, depending on the zone. No commercial harvest of designated gamefish would be allowed but there's a considerable existing commercial fishery for seatrout, so including them is likely to get indignant opposition. Whether any existing limits would change isn't being addressed yet. Decisions on what species to include in each classification would be made after the proposition is enacted. The sport designation would permit no fish-keeping at all. Species suggested by the FWC staff include bonefish (already limited to catch and release), tarpon, permit and billfish. Current regulations allow one billfish a day, one or two permit depending on the zone, one billfish and two tarpon, but a $50 supplementary license is required to keep tarpon. There's a small commercial permit fishery in the Keys. The text of the draft rule and the staff presentation explaining it can be found on the FWC website. Start at MyFWC.com, click the "FWC commission meetings" link and then agenda link under "Next meeting." There, see item 4C for the draft rule summary, with links to the rule and presentation.

Brown listed a catalog's worth of illegally trafficked species: grouper, snapper, seatrout, redfish, snook, bass, bream, catfish, deer, turkey, ducks and alligators. "They placed orders that included one for 900 pounds of poached whitetail deer and another for 500 pounds of illegal snook," Brown said. Once or twice a month, he said, they would haul 2to 3,000 pounds of goods to their markets, he said. Investigators gathered evidence by infiltrating the group a risky tactic that, if prematurely exposed, can sink an investigation and endanger the lives of undercover officers disguised as crooks. The Shadow never had to resort to that. He had the power, before it was ruled unconstitutional, to cloud men's minds. You can still listen to his shows at www.oldradioworld.com/shows/The_Shadow.php Q: What's the difference between a gamefish and a sportfish? A: No difference. Q: How about the difference between a game fish and a sport fish? A: Two words each instead of one. Q: Huh? What's this about? A: Not much yet, but maybe next year if Florida's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission goes through with a saltwater fishing plan to create separate definitions for game and sport fish. It's part marketing, part conservation, described thus: "To conserve premier recreational fish species in Florida and enhance the marketing capacity for Florida's recreational fishing opportunitiesThe designations would highlight certain recreational fish in Florida as elite and worthy of additional protection." Theoretically, that would boost those species' populations. Canal near the Lauderdale Power Plant.

10 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Decembe r2012 Waterfront Times SETH KUGEL From The New York Times Syndicate Four donkeys eat seaweed for breakfast. A teenager break-dances in the surf. An old man nudges a coconut from a tree. And an entire town agrees on how to misspell "crepes." Those were the highlights of my end-to-end hike in October along the 41-mile length of the coast of Piau’, a state in northeast Brazil that barely registers in the Brazilian consciousness, let alone guidebooks. Why would I do such a thing? It started with a pet peeve and an overactive imagination. I had come across yet another article naming the "world's best beaches," a conceit that truly irks me. How could anyone ever declare such a thing with any authority? To create such a ranking you'd have to visit every beach in the world (a task beyond even the most intrepid team of sun-worshipers). I zoomed in on Piau’ on Google Maps and switched to satellite view. Two rivers broke up the coast, but aside from those it was pure, uninterrupted sand no cliffs or ports or naval bases in the way. Although I'm not an avid hiker, I figured four days was enough to walk 41 miles, especially considering the flat terrain. (Funny thing about the sea it tends to be at sea level.) I booked a flight from Sao Paulo to Teresina, Piau’'s inland capital and a six-hour bus ride to Parnaiba, near the coast. Then I took a crowded minibus to Porto dos Tatus, upriver from my starting line, the isolated northwest tip of Ilha Grande. Porto dos Tatus is where boats take visitors on tours of the Parnaiba delta. An idle guide named Bal agreed to take me in his boat for 150 reais ($75 at 2 reais to the dollar) to the spit of sand I had pointed to on the map. (He thought I was nuts, but money is money.) An hour or so darting around the mangroves, and we were there. I coated myself in sunscreen as Bal tied my two water bottles jellyfish corpse, blown up like a malformed Hello Kitty balloon. Such novelties made the time pass quickly. I reached dusty Pedra do Sal in a few hours and had a 27-real plate of pan-fried fish and sweet potatoes at a beachfront stand called Bar Farol where, on a weekday, I was the only visitor. At least until I was joined by five extremely polite stray dogs looking for scraps. In the afternoon, the novelties continued. There were the wind turbines that stretched east from Pedra do Sal, evidence that the cooling wind I had thought fortuitous was instead part of the package. Then I was startled when the harsh daylight began flickering like an impure candle. After about five confounding seconds Was I fainting? Was the world ending? I looked up, and realized a turbine was whirling precisely in the line between me and the descending sun. Night fell just before I reached the river that separated Ilha Grande from Luis Correia, and out came the flashlight. I could see the town lights glittering across the together with a shoelace so I could hang them around my neck. Then I slung on my small backpack (with camera, flashlight, toothbrush and two changes of clothing), and was off. The open sand no trees were even near the water seemed daunting under the blazing sun and in temperatures in the mid-90s. But a stiff breeze had kicked up, alleviating the heat. My goal for the day was to reach the other end of Ilha Grande and find a way to cross the river to the town of Luis Correia, about 12 miles away. Bal had told me I'd hit a village halfway there, Pedra do Sal, where I could find lunch. But for now, flat sands and tidal pools to the horizon were all I could see. I set out in flip-flops across the hard sand. At first, the only attractions were flocks of birds flitting by above, and below, striking tricolor black-andbeige-and-white designs in the sand that seemed computer-generated. But it was thrilling enough to finally see what the landscape looked like after staring at a satellite image for weeks. Every mile or so, I'd run into actual humans: fishermen who stood in the water casting and pulling in their nets. They were engrossed in their labors and not eager to stop and chat. I came across a dead sea tortoise being consumed by vultures also not eager to chat and every hundred yards or so I'd also see a neon-pink-and-purple SEE WAYPOINTS | NEXT PAGE Finding the best beach' on Brazil's Piau’ coast A beach near Cajueiro Grande, in Piau.

CALL PROFESSIONALISM IN PRACTICE I watched as he ladled batter into oval molds on what resembled a waffle iron, then sliced hot dogs and cheese and placed them in the batter, covering it with more batter and closing the top. The result was a sort of cruller-shaped stuffed pancake. It was delicious. My goal for the day was the town of Cajueiro da Praia, and I'll admit I couldn't arrive soon enough blisters and sore muscles had slowed me to a semi-limp. By midafternoon, though, I should have been nearing town, but there was no one, anywhere, to ask. Until, that is, I came across a simple one-story house unusually situated right at the sand's edge and with a yard surrounded by fencing made from rough branches. It was clearly a local residence, not a fancy beach home. No need to knock it was open, and a wiry 70-yearold named Francisco Alves Ferreira was watching a Brazil-Iraq soccer match on television. He wore no shirt and from the dark, leathery skin of his chest, I questioned whether he even owned one. I was pretty close to Cajueiro da Praia, he said: "It's about 10 minutes from here to where that point juts out into the water, and then a bit more than 10 minutes from there, since it's further from the point to the town than it is from my house to the point." Francisco grabbed a pole and a machete and led me into the impeccable sand yard, where he poked a coconut out of the tree, hacked it open and handed it to me. His directions were right; it was 25 minutes to Cajueiro da Praia, where I'd stay at the Pousada Lu (30 reais) before walking the last bit of the coast the next morning, ending at a shrimp hatchery that workers told me sent shrimp to the United States and China. I had completely forgotten about finding the best beach in Piau’. It would have been impossible to choose a winner. It depends, on who you are and what you want. If you're looking for a classically tropical beach, it's palm-tree-lined Coqueiros. If you want solitude, it's those first miles of Ilha Grande. If you're a kite surfer, it's Barra Grande. And if you're Francisco Alves Ferreira, it's the (as far as I know) unnamed beach with excellent coconuts that can be found 10 minutes west from the point that juts out into the water just before Cajueiro da Praia. I stopped for the night in Maramar, a tiny, sandswept town where I was shocked to find a pousada. But its name explained everything: Kite Pousada. I had stumbled upon Piau’'s (barely) emerging kite surfing scene. Kite Pousada is run by a mother-and-son team who charged me 70 reais for a room a bit much, I thought, but I was too tired to bargain. Also staying in Kite Pousada were the only foreigners I would encounter along the whole coast: a kite surfing crew made up of a Finn, an Englishman, a Canadian and an Italian. Together we went to eat in the lone open beach bar (more fish and sweet potatoes). They told me the coast was known for its wind, and were intrigued by my hike, which I was taking east to west with the wind. "Actually, I'm going west to east," I said. "I guess that was a mistake." "A very big mistake," said the Italian. No matter. The next morning I left the kite surfers behind and planned to head straight to Macapa, the next town over, where, I had been told, it would be easy to find a fisherman to take me across river No. 2 to Barra Grande. But again an unexpected sight interrupted me: Along the white sand of a small bay, a family of four donkeys was munching on seaweed. Farm animals run loose all over this region, and if someone had asked me, hypothetically, "Would a donkey eat seaweed?" I'd have said yes. Snapping out of my donkey-induced trance, I walked to the mouth of the Macapa River, where a sand bar formed a sort of semi-lake. I watched two kite surfers speed along and lift off the water, carried by the wind to astonishing heights before landing again. Cool. Not donkeys-eating-seaweed cool, but cool. With significant rowing assistance from me, a fisherman named Francisco took me across the river to Barra Grande for 20 reais. I found a crepes place that was actually open the Bar e Restaurante O Tutuca. When I crossed the Macapa, I had finally left the municipality of Luis Correia and its misspelling w ays, so I should not have been surprised that the owner, who goes by just Tutuca, used a different spelling: "creps." river, but on the Ilha Grande there was not a soul. Time to sleep under a bush, I thought, when I spotted a campfire in the distance. Thank goodness for boring small towns. Three teenage boys with nothing to do in Luis Correia had come across the river to fish; they were roasting their (lone) catch on a stick over the fire. Sure, they'd take me across, they said, and before long I was boarding their precarious raft, about 3 feet by 5 feet of wooden planks, propelled by some sort of a rowing rudder whose mechanism I didn't quite understand. If I had not been confident I could swim to the other side had anything happened, I would have declined. But sure enough, we made it across and I quickly found a basic bed for 40 reais in the Boa Esperanca pousada (small hotel), and an "arrumadinho" a bowl of rice and beans and assorted meats at the Bom Lanches food stand. The next morning, I set out from Atalaia beach, a dreary stretch of sand that was, even so, apparently popular with beachgoers: It was lined with restaurants and bars that were sprucing up for a long weekend. There was also something extremely curious: Scattered on the sand in front of the restaurants were little stands advertising "krep's." Not crepes, not krepes, not creps and not even kreps, but, universally, krep's with an apostrophe. A few miles in, I reached palm-lined Coqueiros beach, and lovely looking resorts and pousadas began to appear occasionally. I stopped for lunch at Alo Brasil, an expansive palm-frond spot with overpriced crab and fish (an appetizer of each, plus a drink, cost 60 reais). As I rested sore muscles, I realized how much fun I was having.

"I'm practicing my hip-hop," he said, pronouncing it HIP-ee HOP-ee, as Brazilians tend to do. Best beach'dependsonwhatyou're looking for WAYPOINTS | FROM PREVIOUS PAGE
