San Agustinillo

Hello faithful readers,

On March 7 we left Oaxaca city and took a 40 minute flight to Huatulco on the Oaxacan coast.  From there it was a one hour cab ride to the sleepy, scenic beach town of San Agustinillo. We had a room on the second floor of La Termita which is a palapa style posada/restaurant which is right on the beach.  Here's a picture from the beach and from our patio.

Here's some more pictures

One of the more exciting things to watch at this peaceful beach was the local boatmen launching and landing their "lanchas" into the surf

This video of a landing has a dramatic conclusion.

We flew from Huatulco to Hermosillo on March 15th and caught a bus to Tucson on the 16th.  We're enjoying our visit with our daughter Katie and we'll be starting our drive back to New York on the 23rd.  We're both ready to be home and decided to skip our planned stop in Myrtle Beach.

I hope you've enjoyed sharing this trip with us.
