The Taylor's and us went to visit another lighthouse (Faro) and the surrounding community this past week. This is the building where you buy tickets for the big trucks that take you through about 3 kilometers of sand to get to the community. This is the only way into Cabo Palonio. Everything is trucked in and the only electricity is for the Faro or by generators. There were people from all over the world visiting. We met people from Holland, Brazil, Chile and of course Uruguay on our trip.
The 4x4 truck that we took out to the Cabo Palonio
The truck loading up the people, roughly 25 people can get on the truck. They have several truck that bring the people in and out of the community.

The view of the deeply rutted sandy road that the truck take to the community
The ocean, we are almost there!
The beaches were very pretty and the surfers were in the water!
Getting a little closer to the community and the Faro.

We ate lunch in a restaurant with the Taylor's. The service was very slow and the food was expensive and not that great! The restaurant had its own generator for electricity. The bathrooms were scary
A group shot. Our table overlooked a patio that was right on the beach the view was great.
The house that is built upon a ROCK
The Faro was closed, so we could not get to the top. That was a disappointment.
This guy was off by himself and way up on top of the tall rock. He must have gotten up there at high tide and now it is a long drop to the water. Oh well he says I wanted another nap anyways ...ZZZZZ
