Yesterday's sea glass bonanza left me wanting more! Bruce agreed, so as soon as breakfast was over, we packed up and took off again. We were heading for Playa Los Bohios, same beach as yesterday, but somewhere along the way, we took an unexpected right turn onto a very tiny and obscure road... which lead to this! Turns out, we have actually been here before, but forgot all about it! And because there is no name for it on the Google Map, we've named it "Forgotten Beach"!
|A very good restaurant is on that hill, Paisajes Curet!|
The beach stretches on to the west only a short distance from where we parked the car, before terminating in a rocky point that is just beneath a restaurant called Paisajes Curet. Not knowing the distance going the other way, we chose to begin with the longer beach to the east. We set off walking, bending, picking and zig-zagging to get the best pieces.
This time, we each had a collection bag for our sea glass. This allows us to separate and cover more ground. Some of the pieces we picked up yesterday were not quite ready, so today our strategy was to be more selective. We would concentrate more on the walking aspect, and only slow down to pick up the biggest, and best pieces of sea glass.
|Wouldn't we love to live here???|
We enjoyed the walk along this pristine stretch of beach. We never saw another soul, although there were a few footprints left by early-bird walkers. We raced along, trying to catch up to the endless procession Great Southern White butterflies that sped past us as we moved up the beach. They were always just a little bit faster than we were, as they flowed around us and continued on their way to wherever it is butterflies go.

|Plenty of opportunity to be hit by a falling coconut!|

So now I'm beginning to notice that we have visited four different beaches in four days. That's sort of a record for us... and with the idea to stretch that out to a whole week of different beaches daily... a plan was born!
And it didn't hurt that my sea glass/sand dollar collection was benefitting! I think I'm just about to get started on making something with them... but not until we hit those three remaining beaches!
