I traveled to Fortaleza today for work, and was lucky enough to have a couple hours to stroll the beach this afternoon! Fortaleza is a large city about 400 miles north of Recife on the coast. It was nice to get out and see another of the northeast's cities.
Fortaleza's beach is lined with restaurants, bars and craft stalls. It is a different vibe from the main beach strip in Recife.
Cold coconuts are only 2 reais??? That is a 1 real discount from Recife!!
Pac-Man must be near by...
Igneous rock formations on the beach. Unexpected signs of ancient volcanic activity in the region.
View down the beach.
I stopped to stroll through a beach front Japanese Garden. Apparently I wasn't the only one enjoying the garden that afternoon...
Then this happened...
Palm in the wind.
Caipirinha at dusk.
Attention!! Risk of getting run over! (It really says that) This was on the sidewalk....
Enjoying the Beira Mar, Fortaleza's beach walk.
