Day 5 - On to Trinidad and the Southern Coast

This morning we said goodbye to Leyenda and her lovely home and were picked up like clockwork by our private taxi driver for our four hour drive to Trinidad on the southern coast.  Once again the wonderful old cars graced the highway as we traveled over the mountains and into the southern coastal plains.

We reached Trinidad, a rather large town on the coast and we dropped off at our next bed and breakfast.  This one was outrageously fantastic.  The rooms were newly remodeled with new bathrooms and amazingly comfortable memory-foam mattresses.

The best part as the plaster art on all of the interior walls, the couurtyard and fountains, the upper deck, and the outdoor dining.  Our hostess is a retired dentist.  A vivacious buxom blond with a high-pitched, little girl voice, and an unforgettable accent and way of speaking.  After three days we were all immiating her.  Poor Dra. Onida!

We relaxed for a bit and then took a late afternoon stroll through both the modern and history parts of the village.

Just before sunset we climbed to the top of one of the restaurants and enjoyed the sunset views.

Tonight our hostess served us lobster tails with all the fixings.  $15 each.
