After my update last night, two lovely very young ladies in Coast Guard uniform were knocking at our tent door in last light, who were asking about our well being…thanks, all perfect! Sure they also liked to know when we’d be leaving tomorrow and where we’d be heading…we are still in the same South America!

We were launching very early into the calm sea, and had again a long day ahead. The paddle was nothing spectacular, three wide bays to cross, until we were rounding the very beautiful Punta Coles to find the sandy beach I had already spotted before on Google Earth.

Punta Coles was a Nature Reserve which really deserves that name! Littered with seals and birds (and their stinky leftovers…), it was a nature lover’s paradise. But it seems to be not open to the public. There was even a real “wall” to be seen just before we hit our beach, to really keep people off there! The black and white light house right at the point was looking quite new, but a bit unusual with the colour. Aren’t lighthouses supposed to be red and white?

We were nearing the beautiful sandy beach, with a few houses in the background. On first sight they looked like a holiday colony, but they were obviously a military training camp, we realized later when our tent was already up…but so far nobody was bothered by us. There were no signs up to chase away two foreign innocent kayakers…sorry, we will be gone tomorrow morning!

Be sure that you have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition running and adhere to these easy actions to start! While it is crucial to have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to import SVGs there is yet another step you’ve got to take to receive them actually cut.

Kayaking on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for our 100 mile race took us close to the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. I included a picture of the black/white striped tower in my latest blog to show a typical American lighthouse.


Freya ist doch gut das die Behörden wissen wollen wo Ihr seid. Sie achten nur darauf, dass Euch nichts passiert, oder sehen nach ob es Euch wirklich gut geht. Je weiter Ihr in den Norden kommt, um so mehr müsst Ihr aufpassen. Aber natürlich kann ich verstehen, dass es nervt wenn sie x male am Tage die gleichen Fragen stellen.
Weiterhin alles Gute, liebe Grüsse auch von Helga
