Living the Life Ecuador coast

Hot news

There is a change coming to the phone numbers we use to call within Ecuador; this is what I have.

Hi All !

Eduardo forwarded this over to me, just in case you are not aware of the phone change, you all need to know it  will happen on Sept. 30th.  You will need to add the extra " 9 " in manually to each cell phone number you call.  I know, pain in the butt, but welcome to Ecuador!

PLEASE pass this info along to others, as for sure I know I've missed some people.

Whale activity

Whale activity is along the coast line of Salinas. Whales can be seen without the aid of binoculars; they can be seen as close as 1.5 km from the shore. Bird activity is also high out at the Chocolatera. You can see seals and dolphins-this is a great place to be for the bounty of wild life that we share this land with.

With the cooler weather and the higher tides, the beaches have been littered with more debris than usual. Algae and seaweed have been landing in large amounts; the beach cleaning crews are doing a great job.

Here is the local tow service

American football season is underway 

The American football season and soccer season are conflicting, but there is room for both. The sports bars down here are clearly divided as to which sport they are promoting.
Score Bar is the place to be for college and NFL games, and every other sports bar in Salinas is where you go to watch soccer.

Road repairs

As you know the main roads are under repair. The blowknox machines have dug out large trenches for some weeks now. I did see a crew sweeping out the trenches, but for some reason they have still not filled them in to make the road good again.

Do not judge the day by the harvest you have collected, but by the seeds you've planted.

Robert Louis Stevenson 13 November 1850 – 3 December 1894

This month in 1620, Pilgrims sailed from England in the 

Mayflower to the new world, now known as the USA.

Here is another thing I like about Salinas.

There are no parking problems.
