After our overnight stay at Punta Salinas we motor-sailed to Puerto Los Gatos to see the beautiful red rocks. It was like Arizona meets the sea.

Natalie didn't want me to get any closer. The cows seemed to be saying, "This is a MOO beach."

The next day we met Dois and Lauri from s/v Ashika on the south beach. They were on the hunt for agate geodes that are imbedded in the rocks. They came prepared with hammers and hatchets to crack some rocks open and we decided to tag along with them. They showed us how to identify the geodes and how to bust them open.
