Bahia Asuncion

The sailing was nice, calm and steady. We arrive around 1 PM set the anchor and waited for the others to arrive. Matt put the dinghy in the water and all 7 of us went to explore the town. There was no dock so our landing had to be through the surf and into the beach.

There is one paved street, along this street we found the Internet café, the Clinic, the market/ paper store/pharmacy/ liquor store, the water store were we got 30 gallons of purified water, the Flea Market, the Police Department and the one pump gas station. There is also one sports bar with a cool rustic design owned by a north American.

The people are wonderful here too. We met a wonderful family; Armando, Angelica and their kids. They too, opened their house to us. They let us use the internet, made us shrimp and abalone cebiche and gave us a frozen octopus along with the recipe to cook it. Plus Angelica gave us a ride to the meat store and then a tour through town. I would like to own a piece of land there overlooking the ocean.. wow!
