Headed around the corner

I am gonna go anchor off the 17th century Portuguese fort, Fort de Orange, for a couple of days before heading up and around the bulge of Brazil. I´ll duck into Fortaleza for a day or two before heading towards French Guyana - the only non independent area in South America. This place is where the French launch their satellites! I want to check out Devil´s Island - Papillion was a childhood favorite.

A quick St. Helena vanity shot.

Itapissuma, Brazil

I am anchored off a village called Itapissuma which is easy to find on a map as the island it is across from, Itamaraca, is about the eastern most point of Brazil...

41 days non stop. Did a sail by of St. Helena and even motored through the anchorage but did not drop the hook or go ashore.
