We had originally intended to go snorkeling at Sally Peachy today. However, the redness of our skin suggested that may not be wise. We slathered on mucho sunscreen and headed of for a short walk up Quinn’s Hill right behind Sea Star. The pile of cobble above will soon be a nice flat road covering the path style road below.
The above yellow pyramid like structure is called Soul of the World. It signifies one of the 8 cardinal points of Earth. Cardinal points are metaphysical concepts…..google it!!
Along the way we encountered this fine gentleman transporting the coconuts he had just harvested.
We then found ourselves extending our short walk down a narrow rocky jungle path which we were told by a local at the top of the hill would lead us to the other shore and more specifically Picnic Centre area.
Eventually after a lovely down hill walk through cool shaded jungle we arrived at the other side where we then stopped for some juice and ceviche!
Once refreshed we re-applied our sun screen and continued walking in search of a hat for me….forgot to pack one. We walked and we walked……eventually coming upon a store that sold baseball style caps!
We were in Brigs Bay the retail area of Big Corn Island..lots of local style shops. The streets were filled with uniformed school children coming to and or fro school. At this stage we were looking for a taxi to get back to the hotel but they were all filled with school kids…..eventually we found one and arrived back at Sea Star. Didnt take phitos in Brigs Bay.
Our short walk lasted about 3 hours!
Upon arriving home we relaxed….. Johnny swam….almost lost him in a rip tide but he kept his wits about him and finally landed far down the beach with only a few scratches from ending up in the rocks. Honestly…it was tense….but all is well that ends well………Lesson learned……we had been warned.
After a stiff drink we walked the just under 2k to the pizza place….actually run by an Italian…had a nice meal….walked home and went to sleep!
