March 10th was a full transit day from BA, across the inlet by ferry to Colonia, passing through Montevideo (the capital) all to arrive at the vacation spot for the rich Brazilians and Argentines. I´m excited to have an exclusive ´beach day´. I´ve been in South America for months, with very little beach time.
Unfortunately, it rained for most of the day. I set out on a bicylcle to explore the coast and next town of Maldonado. Great fun riding along bike routes until the wind whipped up and the rain started pelting. I enjoyed a picnic lunch on a deserted beach, sheltered under the board walk.
