Had a good walk on the sand in the evening and a coconut water after having dinner on one of the great restaurants around. Many people playing volley and beach soccer. Beautiful view of Rio de Janeiro. Unfortunately the water wasn´t good for a bath.

Pleasant breeze cooled our short walk from the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. Great place for kids of all ages to cut lose and enjoy. Local playground made it even better. Nearby eatery, Friends, had delicious churrasco and pizza.

Baby Churro took a short nap on the beach. It was fine. There are some rocks. You can watch surfers if there are surfers which sometimes there are.
