Day 23 - Good Morning from Punta del Este, Uruguay

Happy Valentine's Day 2013! We anchored in the harbor at 8:00am. Today's high is 84°. Jim describes Punta de Este as the Monte Carlo of Uruguay where the rich and famous vacation. Donald Trump has invested 150 million dollars in a condominium high-rise project. The main town of Punta del Este is on a small peninsula where the Río de la Plata meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is a former fishing village filled with high-rise hotels and condominiums. The port is often jammed with yachts in the summer. Ralph Lauren has a home here. Visitors see a resemblance to California's Laguna Beach.
