Beach Adventure

We ventured out in the morning to try to find a beach that we were told was a favorite of the hotel owners at our last hotel.  To get to beaches here we were told that we had to have 4 wheel drive, so we waited extra days for a SUV just so we could have that.  Good thing we did because they weren't joking!  There aren't just nice roads to the beaches here.  You have to really know where you are going to even FIND them!

Case and point as to why you MUST have 4 wheel drive!  These guys were SO stuck!!  This was after they got them out of the major hole.

I wouldn't say that they have the prettiest beaches here but for a Saturday to find a deserted beach... that's good!

The good part of the road to the beach.

This was the tough part... a stretch of deep soft sand that was a bit tricky to make it through!

You just drive across the beach here to get to the next part of road (road is a very loose term for what you follow).

The prettiest bird we have seen yet....

These are all over the property.  They are like a raccoon and can be feisty so stay away.

This is the first evening that we have had clouds so it made for a pretty sunset!
