ROUNDING UP CATTLE.....ROUNDING UP CATTLE.....

Travel Tips for Mar del Plata

MAR DEL PLATA.....

by eden_teuling

" AT ADELA'S RANCH/ESTANCIA SOME ......"

85 km from MAR DEL PLATA, a most gorgeous house....where I stayed with my friend ADELA and enjoyed the ATLANTIC (the beach was only a 10 minutes walk away....), Adela's RANCH and the countryside.....

" MEETING ON THE PATH TO THE BEACH...."

Her horses (most of them) where walking free on the 20 square kms of her land....I met them on my daily walk to the ATLANTIC beach....

" OOPS, QUITE A LOT OF THEM HERE...."

Ar first I didn't know what to think of these wild friends but they just ignored me...

" SCHOOLBOYS ENJOYING THEIR 3 MONTHS HOLIDAY..."

Their father was one of the guards of the National Park...

Adela's RANCH bordered the National Park.....

" A PLACE TO DREAM....."

So many different landscapes, I could walk for hours or drive there through the woods of eucalyptus trees.....

" THERE WERE SHEEP TOO!"

Quite shy these wild sheep, they too, ignored me...

" I MET THE GUARD'S CHILDREN......."

Their father was one of the guards of the National Park, a funny bunch of urchins...

" AND THIS CREATURE IN MY BATHROOM.I WAS WARNED"

I did not like this: little or not so little frogs in bathroom and bedroom....but learned to live with them and knew I had nothing to fear from them....

" ADELA'S CATTLE, CURIOUS AS ALWAYS...."

" ESCUELA NR. 24......"

This was the little school for Adela's children and the children of the servants......her own children, grown ups now, there were only few pupils at school nr. 24!

" DETAIL OF THE SCHOOL......"

PROVINCIA DE BUENOR AIRES, ESCUELA NR. 24 is on the sign.
Imagine, having your own school...

" THE GAUCHO........"

And belief me or not: he was afraid of Adela's dogs......I couldn't believe it but it was true. He never entered the house but knocked on the kitchen door!

" STILL YOUNG BUT ALREADY A PROUD GAUCHO"

" ROUNDING UP CATTLE......."

to be put in a large lorry to be sold....

" BRANDING THE CALVES......."

It smells awful and seems to be very painful and quite traumatic!

I wouldn't be ablet o do this whatever they would promise me as a reward!

" DRIVING ALONG THE ROAD ......."

suddenly a place with the fire burning and the beef hot and tasty ready for those who want to have lunch there with a cool beer and fresh bread.

We enjoyed the place very much...

" SO QUIETLY RUMINATING ......."

in the hot afternoon sunshine...

" AFTER MANY YEARS HE HAD TO BE CUT DOWN....."

this eucalyptus tree standing next to the house...nice colours!!

" ANOTHER ASADO PLACE ....."

Favourite thing to so: grilling beef...in that special way, called ASADO...

" MAR DEL PLATA, THE TOWN......"

85 kms. from the estancia!
Isn't it easy to find reasons, good reasons to celebrate??
No problem in Argentina where the skies are so blue and the sun is shining brightly!

" IN THE OLD HARBOUR........"

colourful country, colourful fishermen's boats....

" ENDLESS, WIDE STRETCH OF BEACH AT THE ATLANTIC"

I could sit here for hours, with or without my book, or walk and look for special shells....
The beach belonging to the National Park, people weren't allowed to come there, so I was the only one and the guard's children who came to fish!

" SUCH SPACE....I FELT DWARFED..."

but enjoyed my freedom there enormously....

" HOW HARD THAT WIND IS BLOWING.."

I enjoyed the sweel and the fierce wind....SPACE & FREEDOM...

" A DETAIL...."

" FROM MAR DEL PLATA BACK TO BUENOS AIRES"

PLEASE, HAVE A LOOK AT MY NEXT TRAVELOGUE, MADE WITH PLEASURE, LOVE AND sweet memories, CLICK top right of this page!

" GATHERING SEEDS IS SO REWARDING (OFTEN!)......"

I always gather stone, seedboxes, leaves, twigs and other interestings things that catch my eye!!

Once home I always give it a try and put some seedboxes in a pot on the window sill and see......the mireacle happened....

Here is The cold Netherlands on a window sill in Middelburg two wanted to appear: the most curious ones, of course....

" ISN'T THIS A MIRACLE ??????"

the second one, oh it took some 3 days before it could spread its "wings"........

" 2 DAYS LATER STRUGGLED OUT OF THEIR SEED-B"

Here they are, standing proud and in pride of place because it is such a joy to see this "birth", this new life...........you bet, I shall take care of them as if they are my own children and I shall keep you posted about their progress.........

" HOW WE LIKE IT IN THE NETHERLANDS........."

they seem to say....

See, here we ware again! Elisabeth has put us in pots and.....yes, we are already so strong that we can be in the garden on a little table......and she takes good, very good care of us.....nothing to complain because when the downpours are too heavy for us we get an "umbrella" till that danger is over......

" PACK-RAT & BEACHCOMBER...THAT IS ME......"

with my souvenirs from fielDs, woods and sea!!

" THE SHELLS I PICKED AT THE BEACH ....."

of the Atlantic Ocean, wild and wavy and so different from my North sea at home in The Netherlands.
