    Swan song

    January 20, 2019 in Costa Rica ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Ok the towel tonight was a swan! This footprint should have been 'Puntoarenas' as we were there all day and a lively beach resort place it is to! I was off the ship before 7.30 enjoying being able to run on a promenade and sandy beach instead of the machines on board. There were already plenty of people in the sea and families gathering for a Sunday on the beach.
    We wandered through the small town, looked at the cathedral and then headed for the beach ourselves for a swim. Boy was it crowded by then! The sea was lovely and we found a couple of seats in one of the many noisy beach bars. The locals were really partying and the atmosphere was great. I found my first decent sized beer of the trip, a 750ml bottle - that's more like it!- and after several of those and another swim staggered back to the ship for a very late lunch.
    We had an enjoyable evening with our table and finished off at the pool party on deck with free cocktails. Then back to the cabin to find the swan!!
