Photo shoot with Dalton

Today we got up early and went out to the photo shoot with Dalton. The car picked him up after us and then we had a 2.5 hour drive to one of the Angra Dos Reis islands, which was a great chance for us to talk and for Amy to get to know him. The island is rented out for the entire summer by Caras Celebrity Magazine for doing celebrity interviews and photo shoots. When we arrived, a quaint little boat ferried us to the island.

The island was small enough that we could walk around it in about 15 minutes but big enough to have a helipad and 5 or 6 bungalos. There was a beach, jet skis, hot tubs, exercise equipment, a bar and a nice eating area. We hung out for a bit while Dalton did his interview and photo shoot, and then ate lunch.

As lunch was starting, a deluge started. It was raining so hard we started to make plans for sleeping on the island that night. But by the end of lunch it head reduced down to a drizzle and by 5pm we hopped on the boat to head back to the mainland.

We didn't expect the traffic jam that we ran into on our way back to Rio, which turned the 2.5 hour drive into a 5 hour drive. But finally we were back at the hotel and eating room service.

Amy isn't feeling well tonight. I guess when it rains it pours! We really can't complain we have been very lucky so far on this trip. But I hate to see Amy feeling bad and not be able to do anything about it. I hope she's feeling better in the morning!
