San Geraldo didn’t sleep well last night. So, at noon, he went back to bed. I had planned to work out after we had our morning coffee (breakfast was hours before), but my game was a bit off. So, I decided to delay my workout to this afternoon. Moose was elated when San Geraldo went back to bed. He happily snoozed alongside and wasn’t pleased when San Geraldo took only a half-hour nap. He just finally convinced Dudo to join him.
|NOT A BAD IDEA (EXCEPT FOR THE HANGOVER).|
Sand Bar (my name for it; click here for my first viewing), which had become Taberna de Piratas (Pirate Tavern), has been re-imagined and rechristened as Los Barrachos del Monasterio (The Drunks of the Monastery). One “monk” looks especially comfortable.

ARTIST PAUL BLANE AT LEFT, TAKING A BREAK WHILE AN ASSISTANT WORKS.
The constantly evolving “Drunks of the Monastery” and several other brilliant works along the beach are the designs and masterworks of artist Paul Blane. He is apparently one of the world’s top sand sculptors. Although it’s obvious form his work, I didn’t know until today that it’s an official designation. He’s been written up in international newspapers and travels the world for competitions. He included his website on the “monastery” sign. Check him out at http://thesand.wix.com/sand.
The weather is still glorious, but temps are climbing a bit. And although it’s not really hot, it feels hotter. Real temp today is 29C/84F, but feels like 33C/92F. From our experience, nothing to complain about, but it may be what has slowed us down. San Geraldo is too lazy to prepare a lunch (and I’m too lazy to clean up afterwards), so we’ll go out for some tapas or pizza today. After that, maybe I’ll see how the monks are doing.
