Title: City tour of Santa Marta and BBQ at the Beach in Tyron National Park

After fixing the motor and the bom Louise jumped on the City Tour to explore Santa Marta with Alex and Inez and the other families.

Ménage à 3 ……                                  and ménage à 4…

 

On Saturday 16th of January the Marina of Santa Marta invited the World ARC fleet to a BBQ at the beach Bahia Concha for a whole day in Tyron National Park. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the highest coastal mountain in the world, sink into the sea like fingers of a giant hand forming bays and coves of exceptional beauty: one of these is Bahia Concha. The coastline is marked by white sandy beaches fringed by rocky atolls, mangroves, and forests, all bathed in the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. 

 
 
We enjoyed a traditional Colombia BBQ with a selection of grilled meats.

 

Alex and Inez so happy to finally be in the water!

 

Kids as bigger kids joining the game.       The girls: Pernilla, Pia and Louise

  

Frisbee game: the French boat Heidi 2.0 against the Swedish boat Take Off. 

   

Alex happy to have managed to get hold of the frisbee among the ”bigger” kids before...


… the game became really too serious.
