Viña del Mar's waves

And here's some more pictoral catching up from our voyage: The beaches in Viña del Mar.

The waves are high and as a result there's little swimming but plenty of getting chased by these powerful waves. Jan had some fun in them. It was fun to have some real beach time as part of our excursion. Even though it involves little hiking and a lot of people.

After christmas, summer vacations in Chile and Argentina start and the Valparaiso/Viña del Mar region receives a huge number of these vacationers. Hotel occupancy was above 97%.

Jan contemplates the Pacific.

Moments later: Pow!















Yeah, Jan made it past the wave for some
great frolicking in the ocean!

Check out the kids' reaction
to this one!











Plenty of wave chasing by vacationers.


Birds doing a fly by. Hard to take
pics of birds in flight with a
