Ok so we didn’t really go to mars but we did go Puerto Los Gatos, which is a cove surrounded by the most amazing red rocks. Ancient sand dunes have been swept by wind and rain into soft, rounded, hills, interrupted by sharply eroded projections. The vibrant red contrasts with the turquoise that we’ve grown accustomed to and it abruptly ends as quickly as it begins. Red surrounds just two small coves large enough for a few boats to anchor in and then fades back to the brown striated cliffs that dominate the area. The place is just beautiful, and silently strolling along the strange mounds filled me with a sense of calm and timelessness. Plus it’s always good to stretch the legs a bit.
