Isla Grande

Isla Grande felt like being on an island in the South Pacific.

From my book…’Then we went 13 miles further along the coast, and took a five minute boat ride to Isla Grande (Large Island), which isn’t all that large, but it might be the most scenic place we’ve been to on this entire trip! Beautiful white sand, palm-lined beaches, and crystal clear water with a population of only 300, mostly blacks. Narrow walkways along the beach under the palms, and not one car on the island. Big breakers coming in off the ocean made us feel like we were on an island in the South Pacific. Another purpose of today’s trip was to check out road conditions beyond Portobello, to determine if we wanted to take our rigs any further east. The answer is no! The roads are full of numerous and deep potholes. So, as far as the motorhomes are concerned, “we have reached the end of the road,” and when we leave here, probably this coming Sunday, we will officially begin our return trip to the United States. We got back after dark, so no happy hour today.’
