Cabo Polonio. There were animals all over the place here running wild, including this domesticated (well, perhaps) duck.

A dead seal, or "foca muerta" on the beach at Cabo Polonio.   There was no shortage of dead seals.  Lots and lots and lots.

The lighthouse at Cabo Polonio. This one is still manned by humans, unlike most in the U.S.

We stayed here.  At night, they turned on the generator and all the stars came out, not necessarily in that order.  What an incredible display it was.  I have never seen so many stars, and I thought one had to visit the desert in order to do so.

The beaches here went on and on for miles and miles.  Sun me, late December, 2013.

Off the coast of Uruguay’s Cabo Polonio.  If my memory serves me correct, that bird is an oystercatcher. One can tell by the bright orange bill.

Cabo Polonio is a funky community of fisherman and hippies, happily living together.  It is perhaps one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

These pictures were taken just prior to Christmas Day, 2013.  The sun set at about 9pm.
