Out beyond heavy surf, it’s Savieros Gaivota.

Out of the morning haze, it’s Crest Olympus and barely above the horizon at this point, Deepstim Brasil II, a name I would not have understood a week ago.

And finally, not a vessel at all–although it looks like something straight out of the Roswell myth–the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum designed by Oscar Niemeyer, who also had a hand in designing parts of  this structure on the edge of the sixth boro.
