Chile, south central coast

Really quite magical. Again, we wish we had more time. Lovely seafood. Nice countryside.

 lots of timber industry evidence
 plowing with oxen
 slate walls

 sea lion island
 beach camping

 that's a nescafe smile
 another chilean playground

 we passed these piggies a couple of times. super cute
 place called church of the rock

 we had a nice seafood lunch here. locos are abalone, though we didn't try them. next time...

 more slate walls
 some slate in it's natural form

 it's a big potato growing region
 Halloween must be earlier in Chile

 the old haciendas had huge porches
 log truck
 clear cut
 milky way, s hemi style
 slept on the beach again. major fog valleys to the north and south of us

 lone fisherman. he had big longshore gillnets that he reeled in by hand.
 this place was magic

 kind of grating after the last series of pics, but funny. Chileans love hotdogs for some reason
 yet another playground
 really cool

last pic from Chile, back north towards Santiago. this isn't the panam, but still a decent highway.
