NEXT DESTINATION? We are here for a while
I took a leisurely stroll into La Penita this morning just because I could. I had no purpose in mind so I just kicked along with my bare feet in the warm sand watching some fishing boats out on the water and looking at the houses along the way. I came across this guy who was walking where the waves were washing and he would take a step and then wiggle his foot into the sand and then let the wave wash over it. When the water receded he would reach down and pick a bug like creature out of the sand that was about the size of a ping pong ball and put it in the bag he had. There were about 50 of these things in the bag. I asked him what they were and he told me but I didn't understand. He motioned that they were for eating!! Later I googled it and it seems they are sand crabs. Ok now I know.
Further down the beach I could see that with the tide being high I wasn't going to get around one building so I had to take a detour or swim. I'm not much of a swimmer so I went around.
There is a cute little trailer park that has a few RV's in it about half way to town so I thought today I might stop in and have a look. It is right on the beach and looks like a sleepy little place. It had a little sitting place out front overlooking the ocean.
There are about 8 RV's in here with most of them under 30 feet and one bigger one in the back. I walked around a bit and ran into the caretaker/manager whose name was Sergio. He said they are full most of the time and I can see why. Nice place.
Even a nice little swimming pool!!
I love the way the fishing boats just sort of hang around on shore. No rhyme or reason for where they are, they are just there. And the fishermen are probably home sleeping because they head out really early in the morning to get their catch.
