The climb was challenging. We took many breaks, but as we got closer to the top, Ellie was amazed by both the view of the beach community below (how small Granny's house was), and the "cliff cows" that were grazing along the steep cliffs. We enjoyed our Larangada at the top of the Fajazinha, and made our way back down the mountain on the trails and later, the switchback roads. A fun girls afternoon. It's going to be fun to do this again in a few years when we come back.
