With our "one day on, one day off" schedule, we can combine really fun stuff, with still continually working to improve our home. But the fun stuff is what you really want to hear about, don't you?
Assembling the bikes once again, we headed off to see the Wall of Tears, a short, but uphill, 6 km to a former penal colony. The Wall of Tears was imposed as a form of punishment, and I surely know that building a random lava rock wall, in the middle of nowhere, for no reason other than to break my spirit....I would be a model prisoner. Ron's recent posting on Facebook has given rise to many quotes, coming in from all around the globe, referencing Cool Hand Luke....but even "shaking the bush, Boss, shaking the bush" has a purpose. This wall...not so much.
|So terribly pointless|
We continued to explore, and there are a lot of little nooks and crannies to ride the bike, walk, and explore, all not costing a penny.
|The obligatory cemetery shot, although a bit sad|
|Our first lava tunnel|
|Uh huh, these guys are even cooler than tortoises|

|Ron making friends wherever he goes - doesn't the iguana look thrilled?|
Today we just swam from the boat. We headed across the bahia here, in search of.....whatever. The most unique thing we found were thousands of baby puffer fish. Oh, and penguins. Oh, and rays. Oh, and sea lions.
Yup, livin' in the zoo.
