Guayaquil Founders Day – July 25

This weekend has been very busy with many folks visiting the beach and spending all night outside our apartment. It started pretty early on Friday and late yesterday afternoon when it looked like most of the crowd was staying Joe saw an article that today is Founders Day in Guayaquil. In looking on-line I found that July 24 is a holiday as well with Simón Bolívar’s Birthday.

I had never seen so much purple in my life, I have no idea who or what these folks were in Salinas for but as they walked down the beach they were singing and seemed to be having a great time.

The tent message translates to Queen of the Birds and the flags are Ecuasal which I think is the salt manufacture here in Salinas. I only saw a young lady there once during the entire weekend not sure what this set up was all about.

We don’t normally see cargo transports  – only tankers out in the queue waiting for their turn at filling up with some form of oil product. This was a huge cargo ship and this morning it is still waiting in line.
