Buzios Buggy’s

After a great night in Buzios it was to be a great full day on day 2.  The plan was to rent buggies, hit the beaches and check out the entire area.  Buzios is set on a peninsula of rolling hills, narrow streets, coves, and lots of beaches and actually feels like an island.  After breakfast BMack and I were standing on the main street and noticed a pink buggy heading our way…Fabian in his buggy.  Duncan and Erik had grabbed one as well…in yellow.  So we headed down to the rental place and Fredj and I opted for the cooler, more powerful steps up instead of basic ones.  He got a jacked up red one with big wheels and more powerful engine.  I got a cool looking orange and yellow one with more power…we were ready.  So Joe-Anna, Tara, Aubrey and I jumped in ours while Fredj and Gito (Mackerer) started their bro-date in theirs.  We cruised around the streets and hills and found great picture spots overlooking the different views of beaches, coves and the ocean.  We stopped at a few beaches to take pics and dip into the nice water.  Then we found a great overlook with a total view of the “island” and one of the best beaches, Ferradura, which is situated on a big horseshoe cove with beautiful houses and boutique hotels overlooking it.  We headed down to the beach and grabbed chairs on the beach for a few cold beers and caipiroskas.  Finally we headed to Praia Joao Fernandez to meet up with the rest of the group on the beach.

Photo Jun 24, 10 48 10 AMPraia Joao Fernandez is one of the coolest beaches in Buzios and within walking distance of our house, though some took a water taxi there from the center of town.  Everyone was in the water or playing soccer or volleyball or chilling on the beach sipping on drinks.  Just as the sun was beginning to set we decided to do a sunset group buggy cruise.  So 16 of us loaded into the 4 buggies and set out on a similar course we had taken during the day beach hopping.  We raced and heckled and stopped and got some great pics just as the sun had set and created some amazing pics.  Pinky and Yellow could not handle the horsepower from Red and Orange though thus received most of the heckles.  Definitely one of the best moments of the trip.

That night after a long previous night and tiring day out and about most headed to Rua das Pedras (Stone Street, as that what the main strip in town is) for dinner, drinks, etc.  Dinner of crepes at our favorite place, Chez Michou, where everyone eventually met up.
