Schooners under construction. I counted a total of 39 schooners under construction in Cajaíba, plus several other wooden boats.

39 seems like a lot of boats. Where are these boats being used? cargo, tourism, ..... ?

Located almost across the street from the ferry dock (I hope there is not some history about everyone feeling the need to pray before getting on a ferry here), is the town church.

This picture was taken from the ferry dock, about midway along the waterfront.

The roofs are over the boats under construction.

Charter boat to Cajaíba

Cajaíba is a village in Baia de Camamu where the main industry is wooden boatbuilding. As the water is very shallow, we chartered this boat and driver to take us to Cajaíba and back.

I'm behind on blogging. The visit to Cajaíba was a couple of weeks ago. I am now in Jacare, near Cabadelo, on the Paraiba River in the state of Paraiba, just a little south of the northeast corner of Brazil.

Street scene mid-day (this is the tropics, so no one is out in the sun in the middle of the day) in the laid-back Bahian village of Campinho.
