After lunch, Michelle and I decided to visit a beach that is not far from Puerto Ayora, called Tortuga Bay Beach. After getting some advice and directions from a few members of the crew, we decided to go for it. It was 12:45 as we left the boat, so we didn't have much time to waste as we had to meet up with the group at 3 PM at the port. And Tortuga Bay was a bit of a hike, several kilometers, depending on who you ask. First step was to walk through the town. We had to aks directions once or twice, but soon found the entrance to the Tortuga Bay Park, a large park that includes the beach. It was a long walk along a pathway that seemed to never end. And it was hot. Very hot. The sun was beating down and there was no shade on the path. Plus we had to walk at a pretty good pace if we wanted to have any time at Tortuga Bay before we had to turn back. A few times we though about just turning back as the walk seemed longer than we expected. But it was hot, and we needed a swim. Finally we arrive at the beach, a nice white sand beach with rolling waves. We were told that there are actually two beaches. This one, which is popular with surfers but dangerous for swimmers due to the current. The other, was another 10 minute walk down the beach. Since we didn't have enough time, we swam at the dangerous beach, but did go that far out. A few surfers were there but the waves didn't seem quite big enough for them, as they just sat on their boards way out there.
