Austin aka Ronaldo
It was Austin's Day. He and Jim went riding on the bumper cars at the wharf last night before we ate supper. Watching them was a group of kids about Austin's age. The two groups had a bit of communication, but it did not reach gigantic proportions until the next day. About 11 am this morning, a group of at least 10 girls turned up outside the Pension Getariano to meet, greet, and get a photo of Austin, who they said looked like the multimillion dollar soccer star, Ronoldo, who plays for Real Madrid. The girls were literally screaming outside when they caught a glimpse of him through the windows. Definitely a moment in his life to remember.
This was a driving day. We avoided the beach cities and drove through the Parque Natural de Pagoeta which had a beautiful old 18th century house surrounded by 8 botanical zones from around the world.
