We drove to Rincon through the back roads, it is a much nicer ride than on highway 2. This was an unexpected trip, we were going to just go to Crash Boat. We had a look at the beaches and the surfers. We decided to move on and headed for Aguada and the little sea glass beach we found. We walked down the beach, came back to the car for lunch and then walked up the beach. We found a couple of spots where we could get to the edge when the water went out, quickly look and pick up the sea glass before the next wave game in. This was great fun and I am sure we did this for over an hour or so
We were heading out for a walk and met Ariana. She talked about how great the whale watching has been. We asked where she was watching them, and she said just from her front porch. She suggested we go to the wall by Surfers beach. We went by the cliff of Surfers beach, but ended up at Wilderness Beach where Len seen a spout from a whale and we saw the most perfect sunset. Incredible ending for a great day!
Feb 25 – Well, the young women were true to form at being noisy, went out at midnight and came in when the bars closed and continued to be noisy. We did ask at the office when they would be leaving, but before we got an answer, she took a phone call.
We went for a walk this morning over to the stone wall which runs behind the Faro Conference Centre, it used to be the Officer’s Mess when this was a base. We are looking out over the ocean to see any signs of a whale and YES, we both see the spout at the same time.
We went to a small beach where the divers go out from and Len went for a snorkel while I sat and read, watched for whales and talked with 2 divers coming out. They said they didn’t see much as it was quite murky with the big waves earlier this week. Len was out just under an hour, he did see some fish and a turtle, but he didn’t want much to do with Len.
We did some grocery shopping and went to bed early
