. A lot of buses go there. The fare is about $1.50.
A bus stop is near the
We decided to go to the right:
This is a hotel. It has beautiful surroundings and huge fountains!
We passed this interesting building. We thought it was underconstruction but it turned out to be the design of the hotel!
This is also a hotel.
We walked along the waterfront to get to the lighthouse.
The waterfront runs along the ocean but there is no beach.
Grass grows on the slopes.
There was a map hanging on the quay. It made clear that the beach started beyond the lighthouse.
On our way to the lighthouse. We saw Neptune on the quay and he turned out to be alive! I cannot get used to these living sculptures :) He gave us 3 beautiful pebbles for luck :)
A turtledove was grazing nearby :)
Divers were looking for something in the ocean.
We found out that the first houses were located here. Below is a map that explains further. It seems that there is an old city under the sea.
Here are the remains of a house. The thermometer shows +93F (+34C). There’s a lizard at the bottom of the photo; they are everywhere!
Just look at this hotel's swimming pool!
This sculpture was among the trees. This time it is actually a statue :)
Finally, we reached the lighthouse.
Here’s a view from the lighthouse. There’s no beach on the left. We came out from there.
There’s a beach on the right which is where we will be going.
Here's a closer view. You can see the sand dunes.
Here’s a bird basking on the rocks. It did not fly away, instead it watched us with a look that said: "I'm tired of all of you!" :)))
The lighthouse was left behind. We couldn't wait to get to the beach and swim, swim, swim!
The waves were not very high. At first, the water seemed cold but it was actually 73 degrees F (+23 degrees C). We had a great time! What can be better than relaxing by the sea? :)))
The beach was sandy and so was the shallow end of the ocean. As the water became deeper, rocks lined the ocean floor. The water is shallow for a good few feet and the sea smells so nice! :)
Overhead airplanes and...
...helicopters fly by:
Then it became too hot. Although the day was cloudy, the sun beat down hard, so we headed back to the bus stop.
There was a lake next to the ocean.
There are a lot of fish and ducks swimming in it.
We walked along the lake to the bus stop.
We still had some time before the bus left, so we went shopping. We bought cards and magnets.
