We got going fairly early to walk out to the point. Punta Cometa is the southern most point in Oaxaca state. We go up some steps from our casa and out a locked gate. Then more steps up to the top of the hill we are perched on. We had a visit with a friendly donkey who lives up there.
Then we followed a dusty road up and down to get over to the park which contains the point. The bush is quite varied and interesting, although nothing very big.
We saw some pygmy owls, one very close to the path, but of course when I pointed my camera at him, he flew away! We also saw a pair of Baltimore Orioles. There were lots of interesting butterflies, some very large ones and with interesting patterns.
Don went all the way to the end of the path on the point, but I stayed in the shade of the trees. Even though it was only 9:00 or so, it is so hot when the sun beats down.
We came back and Don went snorkeling. He saw Frank, one of the other renters here, on the beach and loaned him his snorkel gear when he was done. Frank loved it and was very appreciative.
We laid around all afternoon and apart from a trip out to get vegetables, which Don did, not much else. Had supper at home and sat and watched birds in the dusk. We have a pretty good place to watch the birds.
