During carnaval Joe and I stayed home, we are not interested in getting wet or foamed so why put yourself in a position to be uncomfortable in your own town. We did work in our yard, listened to music and just basically relaxed. Really did not think we missed anything because after spending three years in Dolega with carnaval celebrated only one block away and temporada in Salinas for that one year right outside our windows, we are happy with peace and quiet. But as soon as everyone left and went back to their homes Joe and I rushed out to sit on our little beach. This is what pulled up in front of the Palmazul hotel earlier this week.
It was a beautiful boat, they stayed for two days and when we went to the beach on Friday they were already gone.
The water has been beautiful, warm and very inviting. When we were there on Friday one of the fisherman came down to tell us not to go into the water and actually waved for our neighbor Max and his son to come closer to shore. The waters here can generate an undertow. Joe is an excellent swimmer, was a lifeguard in his teens but that was over 40 years ago. We don’t take the chance and would strongly suggest that care be taken when swimming in our waters. One of the Expats living here drowned in these very waters last year. Caution is advised!
