27th of Jan... and I´m feeling older again !
27.02.2007 - 28.02.2007 21 °C
We woke up and I was presented with a little card from Steph to say happy Birthday (with Happy Birthday written in it in Castellano!... bless !)
Being not that bothered about birthdays (especially mine!) The fact that it was the 27th of Jan was quickly dropped and we wondered what we´d do for the rest of the day.
We Met Roy on the Beach and looked after his stuff while he went swimming and then, we decided we´d give it one last chance and sped off to Punta Norte!
The High Tide was later in the day (about 5pm) so we hung around til about 6:30.
Nothing again... boo hooo
well.... I think we´ve learnt that you can´t expect to see something all the time and also, that the next time we come (which we will!)... it´ll be in mid to late Feb !
Anyway, we headed back to Puerto Piramides and headed to the La Estacion restaurant with Roy for a Birthday feed (Which was fantastic!) after a few cheekies we headed back to the hostel and noticed that we could see a bright star in the sky... although this star had a bright tail spilling out from behing it !
Now I´d heard that there was a comet about at this moment... however... I never thought it would be this clear !
It was fantastic and the McNaught comet covered most of the night sky! It´s the brightest comet for 40 years and will dissappear off into space, never to be seen again !
We crashed out and arranged to pick Roy up at 8am the next day as we had to get the hire car back before 10am.
We dropped Roy off, said goodbye and dropped the hire car off... a little bit dustier than we´d received it... which the guy wasn´t overly amused about... and then headed to the bus station to get the bus to Trelew ($6.50) and then jumped in a cab ($25 fixed costs) to Gaiman... the Capital of "Little Wales"... It was time to forget my rubbish Spanish and get back into my rubbish Welsh! Poor Steph just wanted the next four days to be over ASAP I´m sure
