6am wake up
ugh, I just knew this would be the start to a beautiful day.
But it was. It's been in the 50s as of late, so a sunny day at the beach turned out to be fun but pretty far from relaxing. We had plans to go to two beaches. The first beach sile and the second agva. The only problem though, was that both beaches took 1.5 hours by bus to travel to.
After nearly 2 hours of catching my head as it nodded to sleep on the warm bus, we finally arrived. I have to admit that at first I wasn't impressed. I didn't see a grain of sand, which is what we were expecting. It wasn't really a rocky beach either though, just miles of paved ground. After wandering a bit though and jumping a median we found the sand. There were also what I guesstimate to be sixty foot rocks to climb. We trudged through some shallow (and very cold waters) to climb one of the rocks which proved to have a beautiful view.
Around noon we left for agva, another hour and a half by bus. This bus ride was even warmer and
made me even sleepier, but it also happened to be windier as I nearly fell out of my seat on more than one occasion. Agva had a much larger and sandier beach, but I don't think it compared to the huge rocky scene of sile. We took a river tour too, but there wasn't more to see than shacks and tires hanging from built-up docks. We ate dinner and left around 5:30, but didn't actually get home until nearly 10pm. Needless to say, there was a lot of traffic on the way home.
