LOCATION: In our AirB&B apartment in Punta del Este, Uruguay
WEATHER: Hot. High 86
Before it got too hot, we walked down to the harbor, just about 2 blocks away. Each time we go there, we pass this avenue of palm trees. It is the parakeets’ favorite hangout. It seems like there are hundreds flying around in the trees. With their green foliage, it is hard to see them.
We walked around the docks, admiring the many yachts from all over the world. There were several from Delaware, Florida, Jersey and Guernsey (England), Argentina, Brazil, and this big one from London…
We even saw one from Minnesota!!!
The view of the city is pretty from the docks.
We chatted with a French guy whose boat is registered in Jersey. They shipped his sail boat from Europe and will spend the summer (December-April) here.
We spent the afternoon inside as it was just too hot to do much outside. We tackled the washer/dryer combo. I muddled through the Spanish manual with instructions and features. It seemed to work ok, and now we have clean clothes for our next leg of this trip.
In the afternoon, we had a telephone meeting with Schwab, where Alexis had her accounts. We have had a lot of these phone conferences and emails with companies getting her financial and legal paperwork in order. All (except American Airlines) have been very understanding and have made things relatively easy.
DINNER: Breakfast for dinner! I made an omelette to clean out the refrigerator – eggs, bell pepper, mushrooms, onions, ham, and cheese. George made grits for a side.
