From Burracona we drive east through the dry land up to Espargos and then down hill to a small fishing town called Pedra de Lume on the east coast. Next to Pedra de Lume is an big crater in which there is an old salt production plant from the beginning of the 19th century. Now it is mostly a tourist thing even though some production still seems to be going on. For 5 euro they let you in to see the place (which is pretty spectacular) and you can even take a swim in one of the salt pools. Just like the Dead Sea - and you don't have to go to Israel...
After the mandatory swim in the super salt water, we go back to Pedra de Lume for a freshening swim in the ocean. The beach in Pedra de Lume is actually pretty nice and with the calm sea, Peter, Eje and I go snorkeling off the rocks. The tiger sharks are only active at night, right? SUP and boogie boarding is also on the agenda before we finally head back south with the sun going down behind us. A beer at Angulo's and fish of the day at Compad - what a day!
