Where I stayed
Worse Timeshare Ever!
I had to walk down to the nearby pier to catch the ferry boat which takes you across the bay. Along the way I passed several half built condo and hotel projects that were abandoned over two years ago due to the current global financial crisis. The Swedish bar owner told me they don't know when or if they will ever be finished. Someone needs to do something with them because right now they sit as eyesores along the waterfront.
The ferry boat ride was great and really gives you a chance to see the city as you cross the bay, then it drops you off right in the middle of town
After walking the streets of downtown I decided to make my way back along the shoreline and beaches. It's quite a walk (several miles) but there was plenty to see along the way. A bartender practicing his "Cocktail" moves on the beach. There's a cool old windmill. And there are these two big boats that apparently ran aground some time ago right in the middle of the beach! I can't believe they just left them there.
As I got closer to my timeshare things got more depressing. Dozens of abandoned buildings and those half built condos again. I passed this one Spanish themed place that would be perfect for my new high-end tequila bar. Johnny Cabos! What do you think?
This looks like it was once a great little Spanish coastal town. I know, besides drinking and dancing things sound kinda boring, but don't worry I've got some activities planned to keep me busy here for the rest of the week. Stay tuned…..
