“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 62 – 5th July – Sunday. Santa Polo.
Drove from lunchtime until about 3pm when we stopped at a rocky beach just outside Santa Polo. No Camping signs everywhere, so we moved a little further out of town and found a perfect beach to spend the night. Got a cold beer at the beach bar just as it was shutting and settled in to watch the sun setting and the moon rising.
