Snorkeling Trip #1

There are two beaches which are within a few kilometers, as far as we know. The first is a tiny, narrow cove which will be snorkeling trip #2. The other is at Punta Prima - a beautiful, beautiful beach. The road down the hill to the coast looks like this:

Ugh. Yeah, it sucks here. See the rock walls? Every rock wall is like that. I feel like they deserve a post of their own.

Anyway, the beach.

 Not a lot to see in the water. It's kelp die-off time, so it looked like this close to shore:
 Oh well.
 A fish!

The first time we went out we kinda tested the waters and went back to the beach. Then we were like, yeah, let's go back in and try to go farther out. And we found some rocks and stuff. And a few fishes.

It was great. Punta Prima? Thumbs up all the way.

The ride home? A few kilometers. This was a triathlon day - and by that I mean we did some running in the morning, then rode our bikes to the beach and snorkeled around, then rode our bikes home. Pretty sure we didn't make the distances a triathlete makes, but whatever.

In the picture below you can just see the little white-washed town of Sant Lluis. Looks like the Mediterranean.
