Our destination for the day was a day trip south of Rincon to Cabo Rojo and its lighthouse perched on the cliffs. There are salt flats and this is part of the Caribbean so the water becomes more aqua and calm. Picture below is an inlet of water that lies behind the lighthouse. Here’s a link with lots more info: http://www.topuertorico.org/city/caborojo.shtml
Manatees can be found in these calm waters but we didn’t see any that day.
Here’s a panoramic view
Several artist’s works are displayed inside the lighthouse.
The chalky cliffs are dangerous near the edges as they are eroded underneath the edge. People have died from getting too close to the edge and the cliff lip crumbled away with them. The penisula this couple is on is wider than it looks!The coast guard keeps a close watch over the lighthouse area…Back at the parking lot was a litter of young cats someone must have dropped. People were leaving them food and they were probably scavenging from the trash cans. We picked nearby Annie’s Place Restaurant for drinks and a snack of ceviche and fried calamari rings. Great view of the calm Caribbean sea…
Filled up, we drove back north to our casa for an afternoon siesta.
For late afternoon entertainment, we drove back north to Maria’s Beach to watch the surfers at sunset.This cute dog was wondering about and came to say hello.
Wally wanted to try out the local oysters they brought up from the Cabo Rojo area – they were quite small!
Another amazing sunset!
That’s all for now!
