Making out way up the coast of Brazil and not far from Rio, our next port is Cabo Frio. This is a new port for Oceania and me and it is known for its beaches with fine white sand that has no mica in it and so it doesn’t get hot and you can walk on it without burning your feet and they have a pretty strong surf here. But since I don’t surf, the most fun here was a visit to Rua dos Biquinis or Bikini Street, claiming to be the longest street in the world selling bikinis. Just store upon store for blocks selling bikinis of all shapes, sizes and colours. No I did not buy one!!!! Unless you look like Twiggy, I have a thing about ‘generous’ older women wearing bikinis. But it was fun to look and Cella and I got a couple of cover-ups, a pair of shoes and some sun glasses and then found a great restaurant right there on the canal where we dove right into a delicious butter-laced shrimp lunch plus some other delectable bites and even yummier Pisco Sours. Check out the lime decoration. I am going to do that when I get home, and maybe I should go on a diet too!!
