Big day today. This is the celebration of the release of the turtles from the turtle farm. It is called the ôLiberacion de Tortugaö. The release occurs on a full moon. This is when the turtles naturally hatch and run for the ocean. We will hang around the beach and head for the beach area behind Hotel Secreto late afternoon.
We start our day with breakfast at Bamboo. We are given three breakfast choices, fruit plate, pancakes or egg plates and all are good. Not bad for free.
After breakfast we walk to Hortensiaĺs dress shop to have some dresses made up. This is a picture of progress on Hidalgo. With the replacement of the street tiles, they government is also routing all power and communication cables underground. The meters on the wall are from the overhead cables and the new meter boxes are from the underground. Eventually there will be no cables over head and make the street a more beautiful area.
Our dress orders are placed and it is off to the beach.
Great day to relax at the beach!

The turtles arrive.
The release begins. A lot of the locals bring their children down and the children are given turtles to release. The excitement on their faces are priceless.

We finish off the day with dinner at Rolandiĺs. Dinner was awesome but sorry no pictures.
