P.S. from Susi and Frank
We sort of got stuck here on our "circumnavigation". Our sailboat lies at anchor in the bay and waits for us ---well, not anymore. Things have changed in our life since we first wrote this and the boat no longer fit in. We still miss it….
The beautiful sunsets, the warm, tranquil nights where one hears only the crickets and the surf; where after midnight no man-made light obscures the view of the starry skies; the clean air, the clear sea, the swarms of fish, the friendly people; bathing suit weather year-round, the plentiful mountain spring water: all this and more led us to stop here at the "end of the world" and build a few cottages for ourselves and our guests. It was not easy!
Mar Tranquilidade is a place for people looking for peace and quiet, closeness to nature, distance from the rat race. Those who need all the comforts and conveniences of the modern tourist industry should please choose another destination.
Hope you enjoy your stay!
Susi and Frank.
