But despite getting up and feeling like a zombie, I joined Ruth, Alex, Mary, Nataly, and Whiskey for a day at the beach.
There are a lot of different beach choices in this area. There’s the main Puerto Escondido beach, and the famous Playa Zicatela surfing beach. Then there are several smaller beaches in coves along a one mile stretch of the city’s coast. Then there are a couple more within a 20 minute drive south of where we are parked. Or, we could just walk the 15 minutes to the ocean from where we are parked.
We decided on Playa Carizalillo which is a smaller beach in a cove at the north end of the city. We took the collectivo from where we are parked and it cost 4 pesos (33 cents) each to go about 7 kms (4 miles). Then we had to walk about 20 minutes.
Whiskey’s paw seems to be getting better. Still, we wrapped it in cloth and put a plastic bag over it to protect it.
I didn’t go in the water, but Alex and Ruth went in and played in the big waves. Alex got a bit too much sun but it’ll turn into a tan fairly quickly.
I then spread out my towel in the shade and had a nice afternoon nap.
Whiskey and Nataly...Whiskey likes to sit on the top seat in the collectivo!
Both Alex and I slept again this evening for about 3 hours. Maybe I’ll do some reading and then hit the sack again. It’s nice and quiet out there right now, so I think even the locals have had enough partying for now! Maybe I’ll feel half normal in the morning…
