Colonia del Sacramento Revisited

A few months back, I wrote a post about my visit to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, a trip that offers a lovely change of pace from the chaos of Buenos Aires.  I had the opportunity to revisit the city a couple of weeks ago with my special out-of-town guests, and of course, another outing presented a new set of photographic opportunities.  Here are some of my favorites from our late October jaunt to Colonia.

View from Atop the Colonia Lighthouse by katiealley on Flickr[Daniel and I climbed to the top of the Colonia Lighthouse, where we were treated to an excellent view of the city and the Río de la Plata.  While we were taking in the scenery, we met a young, friendly Brazilian couple on vacation from Rio de Janeiro.  The mix of English, Spanish and Portuguese that ensued was comical, to say the least.]

Leaving Port by katiealley on Flickr [The ferry back to Buenos Aires set sail in the early evening.  I caught the last bit of light and the clouds over the lighthouse as we all headed back to Argentina.]
