Windy Las Salinas

Sugar Cane
Yesterday at the last minute, boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip to Las Salinas.  Of course the political ads lining the highway never fail to annoy me [we even saw my friend Danilo in a superman costume], but we were able to ignore them by blasting reggae music and taking pictures of the scenery instead.

When we were close to arriving, a minor car problem forced us to pull into a car shop/car wash.  Now I don't mean to sound stereotypical, but with all the serious men staring at us with long black hair tied back in low ponytails and ghetto baseball hats, in addition to boyfriend saying, "Lock the doors, lock the doors" multiple times, it felt just like a scene from The Fast & The Furious.

But we finally made it to super windy Las Salinas.  And it was refreshing.  The sky was almost raining and the weather was cool, but the water was still warm.  I relaxed in the water while boyfriend fed almonds to the crabs in the sand.

I came across this Yin/Yang rock in the water and thought it was so cool.  I kept it, and now I don't know what to do with it.

We ate the fruit from the tree that this leaf comes from.  It tasted like sour cherries.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that boyfriend (the boy that hates the beach) knew so much about the plants and shells we found.

A peaceful afternoon.  A great Sunday.
