The ideal sunset is not the one you see and wish you could have been there, but the one we watch and store in our memories. It may not have been the most intense, but it is ideal because it is part of our experiences.
In the dark, there are only shadows and figures. In our lives under regular circumstances we prefer the light. We are pleased, whether it is the brightness of the moon or the intense dawn. Then we are also bearers of our own lights and ideas, illuminating each other.

O Ilhéu de Porto Novo separa as praias de Santa Rita e Porto Novo. Outrora o mar e o rio juntavam-se neste local transformando este pedaço de falésia numa pequena ilha. Atualmente, durante o inverno, o rio tenta reclamar o seu lugar nativo, chegando mesmo a inundar os campos e tornar a estrada intransitável.
Porto Novo islet separates Santa Rita and Porto Novo beaches. Once, the sea and the river joined together here turning this piece of cliff into a little Island. Nowadays, during the winter the river tries to claim its native place, even flooding the fields and blocking the road to transit.
