It has been a very long several days since we made the announcement that we were leaving Ecuador and moving to Uruguay. Between working on a write-up for the sale of our home as well as taking and reviewing the pictures so the place would show at its best, Joe and I are exhausted. So many details to go over, where to advertise, which realtors to contact, so many questions to ask, what is a realtor looking for here, we know the process in the US but we have never sold a property outside of the US.
Now we are getting inquiries and questions from folks looking for a nice beach home and we are so excited about the response. That is great news, now to find just the right people to make this place their home… I know you are out there, looking for just the perfect place to call home.
If you have not seen the YouTube post please take a look:
There are several activities that are available here on the beach. One of those activities are boat tours. A small boat with a canopy backs up the beach near the shore and loads up somewhere from 8 to 10 people for a short tour. Each person is given a life vest and they are off bouncing over the incoming waves for a short tour.
I am pretty much a chicken when it comes to small boats. I remember when we were living in Florida and Joe wanted to take Jennifer and I out in a canoe on the Rainbow River, I did it once and that was it. Just not my thing. Both Jennifer and Joe loved it. And they would go often without me, until Joe found out there were alligators in that river.
To see the waves lift the front of the boat out of the water and slam it down makes my stomach queasy…The set up here is very similar to other places we have lived on the water. They have the banana. It could actually look like a banana all in bright yellow or could be orange or blue but it is always called the banana. The ride starts out nice and calm but when the ride is finished the boat makes a very sharp turn and dumps everyone on the banana in the water. They even have one that looks like a huge tube but no hole in the middle, it has a bunch of handles at the top and you bounce over the water while you are hanging on for dear life, screaming the entire time. Then the boat makes a sharp turn and flings you into the air into the water…as you can see my idea of fun is not getting flung around on a piece of rubber to land on my face in the water. I know you are all saying she is SO OLD, no it is not that, well I am old but…when I was young I would never have done any of these activities either.
There are other quiet more calming activities you can enjoy on the beach. My next post will show a few of those.
