Flag of Chile  , Isla Chiloe,
Thursday, October 7, 2010

We had a short bus ride to Castro, only about 1 1/2 hours away. The weather has been cooperating with us and we haven't had much rainy weather, just a few sprinkles....but it has been VERY cold. We have finally been to an area that Vic has decided he does NOT want to move to. Not because it is not beautiful or a wonderful place to visit, but because it is cold and rainy just like home!

We found a cabana close in town. It was a nice change to have a kitchen and an entire place for us and the dogs.

Castro is a sefood/fishing harbor town. They have these great colorful houses built on stilts out over the water. Two of the major catches here are salmon and eel, as well as an abundance of clams and mussels. Vic had fresh salmon cerviche as well as trying a local dish called Palmay. It is a bowl of mussles with potatoes and sausages on top. He said it was wonderful dish and that the sausage had given the steamed mussels great flavor. Our friend Larry would love both these dishes as well as all the wonderful wines which average $5 a bottle!  

We also spent a day hiking in the Chiloe National Park. It is on the western coast next to the small beach town of Cucao.

Next...the town of Puerto Montt
