This is the view from the hut when you first wake up. How amazing is that!!

Today is Alex's 20th Birthday! Happy Birthday Alex! When we got back to the hut in the morning we had to leave right away to go to Ferrol to pick up the car for the roadtrip. Ben, Alex, Hannah, and I went with Pablo to get the car so that we could all practice driving the beast on the way back to the house. I was really looking forward to driving again as I haven't driven for 6 months since leaving Canada and I really miss it. Unfortunatley though when we got the car it turns out it was a manual and not an automatic and I don't know how to drive a manual. And neither does Hannah or Alex...so poor Ben was the only one who could drive the car.

Getting back to Pablo's house took a lot longer as we were driving really slowly so Ben could get a feel for the car.

It was pretty painful as I was used to Pablo's crazy fast driving and this took like double the time lol. Once back at Pablo's we had some breakfast and Alex got a good morning happy birthday shot lol and then we went to the secret beach to go swimming. The beach was awesome! There was no one there at all! Just us!

There was also this "ruin" I guess...some sort of stone building that had been previously built into the rocks...now you can walk through it when the tide is low and walk on it when the tide is high. So we went in and started climing all over it and up to the other side to see over the rocks out to the sea. While walking over the walls we looked down and there was a dead animal carcass floating in the water...pretty sick and pretty smelly...it was all rotten the part that was in the water and the part that was out of the water was all burnt from the sun and it's leg had fallen off.

my best friends!!
Yuck! Ofcourse I took quite a few pictures of it lol. I didn't climg all the way over the building and over the other rocks cause I am not good at climing and I was too scared haha.

Once done exploring we headed to the beach! Hannah, Ben, Pablo and I were the only ones brave enough to get into the water though. We had to walk over a ton of painful rocks until we got to the nice sandy part but I guess it was worth it. Pretty cold as well but warmed up a ton once we were in the water for a little while. We sat around on the beach for a while just drying off and soaking up some rays.

Eventually we had to leave though so we could go back to the house to shower and pack our bags. We left quickly to go to the grocery store to get some food for the trip! We got all the essentials you need for a road trip like bread and peanut butter, canned ravioli, and ofcourse Ruby got about 10 bags of Cheetos lol.

By time we got all our stuff together, we hit the road at 5:30pm!
