You may think my blog title is about me and my journey. Nope. Wanted to share a story of the place I am staying tonight. So, today was a beautiful day. Really foggy in the morning, which gave way to beautiful blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Was on my way, feeling good (even after yesterday's ascent). I passed by a place with a sign for lunch.

We anchored in one of the first bays, it was quite crowded actually. Being a weekend the beach was full of people - mostly naked people we discovered after settling in. Not because of the sights but due to the swell we reanchored closer to the headland where we hoped there would be less rolling about.
