MAY 2007: Pine tree
When you will meet this pine tree, you won’t imagine yourself in the tropics. This pine tree, however, was found on Santa Catarina Island, near Pântano do Sul Beach. This beach is one of the more than forty beaches on this island, within reach from the city of Florianópolis. Pântano do Sul Beach is flanked by some green hills. I had climbed one of these hills; from the top, the view on Pântano do Sul Beach and the Atlantic Ocean was breathtaking. When we were back on the beach, we didn’t allow ourselves a lot of rest; we continued our walk for another six kilometers to another beach, were a number of our friends were waiting for us.
