Musing on Goodness - May 10


Firstly, let me apologize for not posting yesterday. I delayed posting because it was Mother’s Day and I’m barely literate without my capable proofreader and copyeditor (who both happen to be mothers) close at hand. So I graciously gave them the day off for their special day.


Now let’s get to the good stuff.


I love when plans come together! That was the case with this past weekend, when my sister and I went to Jericoacoara!

Jericoacoara is a beautiful beach town and national preserve on the coast of Ceara, Brazil. The beach stretches for miles, and access to these pristine stretches of land is highly restricted for vendors and vehicular traffic. The area boasts massive sand dunes that are interspersed with flat areas of greenery. There are many lakes of varying sizes that exist around and between the dunes. The tourist area of the town has a slew of villas, hostels and mini hotels mixed with numerously diverse restaurants and shops. These are all separated by sandy roads and alleyways. And oh! I can't say enough how beautiful it all is.


Because of Covid restrictions, we had to use a ride-share service that was contingent on the driver filling all the spaces in his car before he’d make the journey. We had originally planned to go on Wednesday, but he didn't have space for us so we had to cancel our villa reservation. We then switched the reservation to Friday and waited for his confirmation that he was going to be driving to Jeri. He confirmed, and the trip there was smooth and uneventful. Everyone we met was very helpful in getting us to our villa.


It's simple to describe the trip, but putting it all together was a bit nerve-wracking. All these things and more needed to line up for our trip to go smoothly - God made it so. I love it when plans come together better than expected!


We spent our days on tours that took us around the town. We spent our nights strolling through the town centre perusing shop fronts. We swam in several lakes, and we took a drive all over the dunes, riding them like a rollercoaster of sand waves. We met people who enriched our tours. We ate delicious food and drank delicious drinks. We strolled along the beach, collected seashells, and simply marveled at our surroundings.


Oh, it was a pricey venture to be sure, but well worth the cost of seeing this beautiful piece of God's creation. If ever you visit Brazil, try to include Jericoacoara in your itinerary. It's one of the must-see places to visit in Brazil (and there are many).


So what good thing happened to you last week?
