Used our boat ride ticket to Isla del Sol; ~12km from Copa. A rapid ride (as on the Hydrofoils we watched fly by us) our boat was not; took more than an hour to go ~7 miles, or in nautical terms our boat 'trolled' along at 5 knots/hr. It was a leisurely ride, and managed to transport Lidia to lullaby land.
The Isla Sol trip entailed the roundtrip boat ride and a hike from the Sol disembarkation point to the embarkation point. Approaching the island it became obvious that the hike was not a leisurely stroll along the beach. Nope, it would be a steep, rocky climb up from the dock; ~75 foot vertical. Then a 3/4 mile long gradual uphill walk cresting a few hundred feet in elevation. Obviously we would then have to descend those few hundred feet in elevation to get back to the boat at water level; the distance covered only another 1/2 mile and so was steeper. To board the boat we had ridden over on, the hike had to be completed in an hour; quite an undertaking if wearing a walking foot cast; e.g. Lidia. Luckily there was a boat disembarking an hour later than ours, upon which we could return to Copa; that gave us 2 hours to do the hike.
Great views from the highlands, and a couple little stores where we could replenish our water bottles.
Lidia was happy to have great views of many Titicaca Grebes; a rare species found only in certain areas of Peru & Bolivia. The lake water is so clear that we could watch the grebes dive down to lake bottom and forage about for food. The bottom being 15-20 feet down where they would stay for 2-3 minutes.
Back for a relaxing dinner at our hotel dining room overlooking the lake at sundown.
Tomorrow we have arranged for a local taxi driver to take us directly to the La Paz airport for a flight to Sucre.
Ciao for now
