We only had one night at the B&B but it would’ve been nice to have more; such a tranquil location and the owner was wonderful. I definitely recommend it though you do need a car as it’s a little out of the way (that’s its attraction).
So, we squashed ourselves and possessions into the sub-compact car … (which was actually smaller than this photo suggests).. and headed north-west. Well, we wanted to go north-west but Lee, the GPS, was incredibly contrary & stubborn and we basically spent the first 3 hours on the road doing circles on country roads not more than 50 miles from the B&B!!! Lee wanted to take us onto private property multiple times; once through a guarded entrance. And he had us turning onto crappy roads with dicey-looking bridges:
Eventually the circle grew enough to include a sign for a town on my Chilean map and we were finally on Routa 66! It was a really hot day; the a/c was useless; the car struggled on any-degree incline; the manservant & I were barely speaking and I had to beg for a toilet stop as that little car had amazing fuel economy! We stopped at a supermarket where there was a toilet and food for late lunch – a little different to the beachside cafe we’d envisioned when planning this day!
I certainly had plenty of time to take photos of the passing landscape; here are 150-ish miles condensed…..
It was such a relief to eventually round a corner and see the Pacific Ocean! The 4.5 hour trip took about 8 hours!
And, the trip wasn’t finished as we had yet to find our accommodation!
