Today would be our last day in Pipa. We'd loved Praia do Madeiro so much that we decided to go back there. By 10:25 we'd settled into exactly the same loungers that we'd vacated the evening before. I couldn't accept being so clueless in the surf yesterday afternoon so decided on a second lesson. Sid said she wanted to join me so we went in search of Jonathan.

We didn't hang around though and went in search of a decent cup of coffee. We hadn't had one yet but miracle ...
... see if the beach party was happening. I managed to persuade Gaston to come with me and we went down to the beach. It was so dark in some places and I think he was a bit scared, because the next day he said, 'Emily you really aren't scared of anything are you?' That's not true at all but I thought it was funny. I'm so used to travelling alone that now if I do anything with anyone I don't feel scared because it's an added to bonus to have someone with me. So we got down ...
