Sunset in Huanchaco






We're on our own now after saying goodbye to Ann yesterday morning. We're so glad she joined us on our trip and were sad to see her go! But she was right, Huanchaco is a much different place when the sun is shining and the surfers are out! We've spent a couple of days doing not much. A little ready, a couple of walks on the beach and that's about it! The local fisherman are still using the boats they have fished with for hundreds of years, kind of like half a kayak that they sit in and paddle with a stick. Not the easiest way to catch your dinner (or make a living), especially given the rough Pacific Ocean. The surfers, on the other hand, love it here and the town has turned into a surfer hangout so there are lots of places to stay and restaurants to visit. There were a couple of highlights to our stay. One was watching a couple of Pelicans preening on the beach and the other was an excellent lunch at the Club Colonial, staring out at the ocean with a cold glass of white wine. We're winding down now. We fly to Lima tomorrow afternoon and then home in a couple of days.
