Last weekend Paul and I headed out to dinner at Le Sorelle, the restaurant at the Casa Lucila Boutique Hotel. We like the food there – mostly mediteranean – and the service and atmosphere. The restaurant and bar has very high ceilings with exposed vigas and the windows open wide so you can watch the sunset. We sat in big comfy leather armchairs. Last year we watched an electrical storm from there – it was the perfect place to watch the show.
There were high waves (olas altas) all last weekend that led to the cancellation of a regatta and some other events. In the video below there were quite a few surfers at both sides of the beach, way more than normal due to the high waves. (1 minute 2 seconds)
Sunday we stopped at a palapa restaurant on Playa Norte in the afternoon and while we were there the lifeguards came whistling by… telling everyone to get out of the water. The waves were huge – and very unorganized. That’s the kind of water that I got thrashed in last year – I injured my elbow and it isn’t fully healed yet! Most people got out of the water after the lifeguards said to but after a few minutes headed back in, of course!
