I’d Rather Be in Fernando de Noronha

It has been a while since I last posted. I am returning to blogging at a different pace, by reading more of your posts and joining the WP weekly photo challenges.

I saw a few interesting past themes. One of those is: ‘I’d Rather Be’. I’m back in Amsterdam, a tad colder than Fernando de Noronha archipelago in Brazil and a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site where I spent a few days in mid-March. It’s not yet Spring weather, and I’d rather be on that island.

  1. Missed you and your beautiful photos, Lucile. I’ve been on a lengthy blogging break myself, but still checking in to read and comment on a few. I posted last week during my spring break. I’m bringing back the Sunday Stills photo challenge with some updates beginning in May, with the help of another blogger as a Co host. Hope you can participate!


    1. Heartfelt thanks for the warm welcome, Terri. As you may notice, my restart has been slow as I took such a long time to reply to you. Sorry about that. I will check your blog and will do my best to join your challenge if time allows. Hope you are well and wish you all the best with the challenge. You are brave to host a new one, as it takes a lot of time, but you’ll surely do a great job.

  2. Glad you are back. Your images woke up beach memories…the sound and touch of the wind, the physical sense of water in all it’s manifestations, irritation of sand in the eyes, and the embrace of the sun. Thanks!


    1. Hello, Lexie. Lovely to see you here. My come back has been too slow, and I’m finding difficult to restart my blogging activities.I’ll get there eventually. I am happy that you enjoyed these photos. Hope you are doing well.

  3. just lovely photos…I almost came to Amsterdam this week…to see the tulips. But couldn’t get my butt in gear to do ANY-FRINKIN-THING. Hey…what theme are you using now, it’s cool.


    1. Very beautiful place indeed, Lisa. Still needs a bit more of infrastructure but I was pleased with the environmental protection. There are is a limited number of visitors allowed per day and one pays a daily fee to be there. Additionally, you pay to visit all protected areas. No massive attack of tourists to be seen! Turtles, dolphins, sharks and all other species have protection there.
      Spring gave us one week with summer temps, but it’s now back to 12-14 C. Not bad, though.
      Hope you’re well!!

        1. Kind of magic, but unfortunately the infrastructure is way behind. Government is not really using the money collected to do what is needed there. Somehow it feels good because it’s not much developed yet, but where is the money going?
          Ah, it’s very expensive there.

            1. It does, thanks to the environmental protection agencies which also gets money directly from every tourist, so the funds are not deviated to the local government. They also get money from the national budget. They’re the most interested in doing a great job to protect the archipelago. Fingers crossed!
