LOST. And what we found.

On Sunday, before coming back, my cousin decided to take me to the beach. My aunt Luisa, my Cousin Juanita and I had gone to the beach before so I knew it wasn´t so far. But my cousin Carlos decided that, as he was the only male in the group, he would direct the trip. No comments!!! We got lost, Carlos also lost the map he had brought and suddenly we found ourselves with little gas, in the middle of nowhere and in an awful dirt road that did not go where we wanted to go. Nothing is entirely difficult though. We finally found a gas station and we filled the car´s tank. At least the car wasn´t hungry. We reached a lagoon that was protected and there we found lots of swans with back heads and necks. It was a beautiful site! The swans go there to reproduce and there were lots of ducklings swimming there too. I was so hungry that I said we could grab one or two and roast them We went on and finally reached the seashore. we found a very good restaurant where I ate a fried conger eel with french fries. Juanita asked for a crab pudding and my aunt ate abalone. All this with apetizers and wine. Yum! We also got lost on our way back, but we knew that we had enough gas so we did not mind. It was along trip though and it reminded me again not to let anyone talk me into taking short cuts when we go anywhere.

Poor ducks I would never eat a duck, but I love abalone.

I said that as a joke to let my cousin know that he had taken us to a road with no places to eat. The swans were beautiful and the ducklings very cute.

At least you enjoyed yourself when you were no longer lost. It is frustrating when someone tries to take you off the main track. Glad you were finally able to have a good meal.

The meal was delicious and the lagoon would have been wonderful if we had been prepared for such a long trip.

@marguicha Being lost can make a short trip a lot longer than expected.

Are there devices made to find that device when it gets lost?

It sounds ideal to me and the food well fit for a king or queen! What a lovely trip you had Marquicha. Looking forward to more adventures. I have not tasted any of those seafoods you had.

Well, I don't see anything wrong being lost in a long trip to unfamiliar place. . . I got lost just going to the Calgary airport, which is just a 20 minutes by car.

I guess I would rather get lost durng 20 minutes than being lost in a dirt road during 3 hours.. The swanns were worth seing though.

Clever-clogs men! Why do they think that women don't know how to get to places.
