A flooded bridge is nothing new this time of the year but unfortunately this week a falling tree destroyed the bridge. It was bad news for us because the bridge is the main connection between the Bosque Santa Lúcia Reception Center and the main forest trails. We were able to get some groups to the forest via another route but the mud got so bad, we had to abandon the effort. Thankfully, there's a lot see in and around the Reception Center. Thanks to our guides and woodsmen, we were able to complete the tours.

Our younger son, Arthur Daniel, at Bosque Santa Lúcia today. He was helping us with two groups of British passengers from the cruise ship Adonia.

Given that this storm targeted only the Reception Center at Bosque Santa Lúcia, it must have dropped out of the sky in the form of a tornado. Several large trees were felled with damage to the round-house, the Casa de Caboclo and the bridge. The tree we see on the ground is a taperebá (Spondia lute)
