Flag of Uruguay  ,

I set off to seek my own small beach paradise. A kind friend told me to find La Pedrera while in Uruguay. Awaiting me was my own private beach-there was not a soul. Upon first sight of La Pedrera, it looks like a very small town and you get this idea that the town will come alive after dark. Reality is that it is the off season and everyone is gone and the cool spots are closed until the spring.

Stepping on La Pedrera Beach, ¨From Here to Eternity¨ came to me instantly: I could not believe my eyes and that famous scene in the movie. You know the scene where Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster and that iconic kiss on the beach. The kiss and visioning them here on this beach filming that scene-wow strange.

One more thing if you come here during the beginning of the off-season you might encounter a stray dog or two. One of them might decide to stay with you and follow you everywhere you go during your entire stay. To be on the safe side, get a rabies shot before making the trip.

Cabo Polonio and La Pedrera-a must see!!!
