I love the salt water, so it is no surprise that my favorite views on my virtual bike trip are those along the coast.  Near Penare, I discovered a spot where a stone house overlooks a sandy beach.  The water was the color of the phthalo blue in my paint box …

Near the beach, where a stream runs across the road, is an interesting ford.  It looks like there was once a bridge at the crossing, but the encroachment of sand and vegetation made it easier to ford the stream.  I would love to know the history of this stream crossing …

Best View:  a house by the sea near Penare, the road lined with crowds of purple flowers (my painting looks quite different from the inspiration, above) …

  3. What a lovely spot. I like the old stone house and the countryside. It has a storybook quality.

    • Hi. The place is quite isolated. Although it is a public beach, it must seem like they have their own bit of heaven. Jane
