La Paloma

Having got all our needed stuff sorted and done it was time to relax a little.

Heading for the coast we made our way back down to La Paloma where we had been offered a beach house to stay, by way of timing we decided to stop for 3 nights, the owner doing some maintenance work we offered to help given his generosity of helping us.

There was two outside walls needing water blasting and painting, both of which he had. We set up the water blaster and set too blowing the old paint away and ripping all the loose stuff off ready for painting, given it was mid 30’s it dried real quick allowing us to colour it in and make it look nice again, stoked to be able to help him as he had a lot to do in a shortish time frame and I am pretty sure he appreciated an extra couple of hands to bring it up smart.

We took a tour along the beach road north and took in some sights, there are huge sand dunes which is a tourist attraction, the beach was covered in these small balloon like things

A nice casual walk around the town at night led to a lighthouse at the point.

In the town center there is a whale skeleton which is pretty cool, when you get to stand beside it you get to feel the size of these things
