Dear Family and Friends,
Sometimes I end up not putting pictures on this blog because I have so many to share. Today I am adding more pictures I took while we were at the beach in Salinas, Ecuador.
Sailboats we could see from our condo.
I'm not sure what kind of boat this is but I think this is an interesting picture with the flowers in the foreground.
A couple of pelicans.
When Chuck, Randy and Karen went up the coast on Wednesday they found a neat "get away." The name of this hosteria is Farallon Dillon. Karen posted about about it on her blog. To read about their trip up the coast click here.
I was fortunate that Chuck and Karen took me to this wonderful place on Friday for lunch. (Poor Randy was having his turn at being sick and having to stay home.) It can easily be reached by taxi from Salinas. We of course, went in Puff-Puff.
This is the light house and the hotel/restaurant.
It is overlooking the bay. The swimming pool is real neat because it looks like it is part of the bay. Here is a picture showing the mermaid that looks like she is jumping into the pool from the ocean.
An outside bar made out of a boat cut in half.
This is the patio eating area. During whale season, you can sit here and watch the whales play in the bay. They like this particular section of the coast for some reason. Our lunch was fantastic.
The inside is just as interesting.
The inside bar.
They also have an old church that has been turned into a nautical museum.
When we go back to the coast this will definitely be a place that we will visit again.
We are back in Cuenca now and are happy to be in this wonderful temperate climate enjoying our friends. So many holiday happenings are going on around town. We are anxiously awaiting the Christmas Eve parade of the children.
