23.August Puerto Madryn – Playa
We checked in into Casa Tounens which is very close to the busterminal, and I was there last year already. Buena Onda. Vincent the french owner is very friendly and as it is only a small hostel its very nice. Arnaud the french receptionist was very nice with his girlfriend. We met Janet a girl from Italy and Susan a peruvian living in BSAS. Janet was snorkeling with sealions and and was very happy. She wanted to walk along the costline but I suggested we share the taxi to Playa Doradilla, which she immediately accepted, Susan as well. So we went to playa and it was really s.th. To see the whales such near. Loved it. We stayed there 3 hours just watching so impressive.
Janet had to leave the same day but with Susan we walked along the costanera and went to supper in a pizza place called Il Nonno, we had pizza marisco, wow full of mariscos, incredible.
Arnaud told that they made an Asado yesterday and I asked whether that is possible also tomorrow. And he asked around an all agreed, also Dineke and Mat who came in later. So tomorrow Asado, tschakka. Che, Cachai
24.August Puerto Madryn – Punta Loma
we rented the same taxidriver than yesterday and he brought us to the Punta Loma National Resever with a lot of Lobo Marinos. Unfortunately we only could watch them from above ;o( . but it was a nice landscape and easy going.
Returning to P.M. We did some walk again. And in the afternoon around 7pm Arnaud started bbqing and Humberto went with Susan to buy wine. He had choosen very well. It was a great night we chatted all and about everything. Great great great. We went to bed late.
25.August Puerto Madryn – Playa Doradillo – Puerto Piramides
We asked Susan whether she wants to come with us and also she could stay with us one night in P.P. She happily accepted. We went around 11 am to the car rental picked up our car (730 ARS if payed in cash) and then picked up our stuff, stopped again in Playa Doradillo and this time it was even better. Wow.
Entry into the park was 180 for us and 80 for locals ;o((. We did a short stop at the information center and continued to posada caracoles. The owner Baston is a nice guy and
gave us base information. We checked the whale excursions and got from the 1st agency and offer of 20 % but he did not accept credit card. The second was closed for the day, So we checked southern spirit a agency which looks highly professional. They offered us for 5 excursions 1 free so we accepted that. I dealt for Susan 20% for her excursion. We ate in Las Restringas directly at the beach, and the guy gave as Vieryas as an appetizer for free (Jakobsmuscheln / Scallops) hmm riiiiiiccccooooo ;o). But the place was really expensive. So we decided to go next days to some place else.
Susan shared with Humberto a bunk room and I had the matrimonial for my own ;o)).
