Warm Day at the Beach

Well, it was such a lovely day today that we decided to go for a walk on the beach in front of the hotel. Actually, in the stretch of tree lined coast behind Denise, will soon be our new home.

But first, we went to our bank to get a cashiers check for the deposit on the house. It took nearly 1 1/2 hours. That is because they are very meticulous with their transactions. They check and double check. You sign a dozen forms. And then, our signature hadn't been posted on their computer yet, and despite the fact that I had my passport, they waited until they could contact the main branch and verify the signature. These things are things that many think about negatively. I was just happy that I had the time to wait and get things done nicely.

Then we went on down to the beach. As far as you could see, and I mean that literally, there were less than 10 people on the beach, including us. Most of those were clustered on the point around a couple of fishing boats pulled up on the beach. We walked in sparkling sunlight in a kind of lazy warm (60's) weather until we went up to a local restaurant for a nice milanesa al pollo.

Have I told you that we love Uruguay?
