... wonderful place to get away from the “world”.
North of here are huge sald pans, and amazing flocks of bright pink flamingos, that shimmer in the sunlight as they take flight below us. We are only 200 feet about the ground (or ocean), so we are close to everything, including the bottle nose dolphins we see swimming just below us. What a great way to see the country!!

During many days of hanging out with various people for craft sessions, I managed to arrange a meeting to join some women to venture out without booking the expensive shore excursions.

We spent about a half hour taking photographs and climbing part way up the dune but it was already hot and the sand was almost too hot to touch. We noticed some very large winged insects flying about the trees, but nobody knew what they were. It was then time to drive on. We continued driving through ...
