Serra do Rio do Rastro

Serra do Rio do Rastro next on the list, the same weather pattern so time to make the most of it, we took a shortcut on the way there, the road a little rougher than we expected but good none the less and providing some neat scenery.

Through Bom Jardin we made it to the top viewing platform, was a good place to stop for lunch given nice day with a grand view, this road is a an engineering marvel as well with extremely tight hairpin bends requiring truck to do 3 point turn for a lot of them, we watched one truck do a wrong approach and hit the concrete wall … which did not move, the side of the truck a little worse for wear, even at our corner he stuffed it up so he was either drunk or just plain useless.

After our bite to eat we rode done part way to take it all in, we may be back past this road again but given the great weather we took the advantage.

Again done and dusted we headed back via the road this time enjoying the nice seal couple together with twists to go.

Dumplings and Sushi, the order for tea, Ellen setting too and making tea (dinner) for 6 of us in style, the crowd enjoying the Chinese treat and of course approval from Martha being the birthday girl was awesome!!
