Within the first two weeks of being back, we managed to do two things that we failed to do at any time last year.
1. Hike on the Avila.
2. Take a day trip to the beach.
The hike was easy enough that Graham could come along. He was a champ. We passed by a couple waterfalls and he was able to strip down to his undies and cool off. I would have liked to as well, but ended up making the wiser choice.
As for #2, it was a 2.5 hour drive to Puerto Frances where we hopped on a boat taxi to the more secluded, though still busy, Caracolito beach. We rented an umbrella and chairs, played in the waves, and no one came home with a burn.
What other weekend trips will be made possible by having a car (and finally, car insurance)? I”ll let you know when I find out.
