A cobalt sea, string of litttle coves and a flat land under the forbidding mountains are what make Tarrafal. The beach sports, fishing, sunbathers is great for soft white sand, and artists displaying their wares.
Elder and Sister Broderick from Mindelo are down here meeting town officials for one of their welfare projects. Such a great couple from Danville, California, not too far from where Mike and Carrie live. He is retired from Chervon.
This family of three children and parents were standing on the side of the road waiting for transportation in the rain, and when she sat down next to me, she kept rubbing her very cold little hands on my warm arm!

|Esargos draws its unlikely name from the wild, yellow-flowered, red berried asparagus bushes that are said to grow on sandy parts of the island|
The arrival at Sal on an international airport descent indicates rocky planes, on the coast line, you see fancy resorts, and in the southern island is tourist city of Santa Maria with 11 miles of pure white sands, and crystal clear aquablue waters.

Trip to Ponta do Sol was from Mindelo on fast ferry which took 40 minutes from the Island of Sao Vicente to Island of Santo Antao. Then after docking in Porto Novo and collecting your overnight bag, there is a guy with a sign "Sister Cummings" waving it among the other signs for you to find the right vehicle to travel to where the Sisters apartment was in Ponta do Sol a two hour winding road near the coast line areas where the waters were lapping the shores. I do believe you could surf on those waves if you didn't come in contact with the rocks on the shorelines. We had nice smooth road almost all the way. First encounter to meet--the goats & few cows crossing the road. " Get along doggies"--Following cliffs and with numerous tunnels hewn out of the rock, you will reach Vila da Pombas (Paul) in 20 minutes. A vast ribeira home to thousands of people and their agriculture--sugarcane, breadfruit and bananas. Getting to Ponta do Sol is at the end of the road. A gracious town, built on a breezy peninsula.
