Stoned at Stone Island

No not really.....nothing like that was offered. Made do with a mai tai and a beer. Today was okay - it was a cheap tour and you get what you pay for. At least the company today was much better. It was a small group - two honey moon type eating each others face off couples,(they were really nice though - the one nice young man helped me up the steps into the truck and boat - between the high sidewalks and that I will need knee replacement surgery by the end of this trip!) a family of four with extended family from France and me. I expected lots of young drunks so it was a pleasant surprise. Loved the beach at Stone Island but I realize I am getting squeamish about being in the ocean. I keep thinking of all the people I know who have been stung by jelly fish and what could be in there and I get nervous. So I contented myself with walking in a bit and splashing and walking out again. This was a calm beach not a surfing beach like the one opposite. Anyway it was a pretty good day. I think I have done the beach thing.

I walked through a different part of town to try out a Lonely Planet recommended restaurant. Breaded butterfly shrimp that were absolutely huge ' yum. Back in time to see the last of the sunset. Came via a different street with some gorgeous houses around the corner from here - it is elevated so missed it. Have to go back to photograph it when the light is better.

Am really tired today so will crash early. I plan to explore more of the Old Town and downtown tomorrow and then attend the Flamenco show at 5 p.m.

I was going to walk up to the Lighthouse but I saw it when we got the boat and I thought no way. Life is too short to do that to my poor body.

Adios!
