Spring on the Beach

A beautiful spring day in Atlántida. This week it has dramatically shifted from being chilly at night still needing some heat, to being warm, even hot, today. Mid-20s C (mid-70s F) as I write this.

Sea is back to being more blue than brown, following the awful storms of nearly two weeks ago that wildly stirred the Rio Plata silt. It’s never pure ocean blue, since though there is nothing but water between here and Antartica on the heading of this shot, it is technically still the river.

Many of the fishermen with their heavy-rod spinning or casting rigs, were out wading well offshore rather than on the Playa Brava itself. Further down towards Las Toscas, out of the Zona de Pesca, some families were playing in the water though it is only the second week of Spring.
