We Are Off to the Coast

Dear Family and Friends,

At this moment we are throwing clothes in our suitcases and loading Puff Puff.  We are heading to the coast for a week or 10 days.

We are going to pretty much plan this trip in route.  When we get somewhere and want to stay a day or two, we will......working our way north. 

We are heading to Machala today.  I have some gambling tokens I have to convert to real money.  The last time I was at the casino in Machala, the machine dropped out coins.  I mistook these coins for dollars, put them in my pocket.  I discovered they were tokens when I went to pay for a cup of coffee with them in Cuenca.

My version of converting these tokens to dollars is to put them back into the slot machine. 

While there, we will drive out to Puerto Bolivar for some fabulous seafood.

On Sunday we will be driving to Salinas, and move on up the coast at our leisure. 

We are taking the camera and a net book computer.  I hope to be able to take you along with us as we travel.  We will see how that works out.

Have a great weekend.

Nancy and Chuck


  1. We miss you already! But are looking forward to the pictures and tales of adventures!
    Wishing you clear skies and clear roads!

  2. Thanks Mrs. Garate, we sure plan to.

  3. We're heading to Salinas next weekend for the first time. Interested in reading your reports. Are you going whale-watching in the area? It's prime season, we've heard, so we're certainly looking forward to that adventure!

  4. Edd,
    We intend to go on a whale watching adventure out of Puerto Lopez.
