This morning we went to Genoveses beach near San José. We were expecting the sun to come out but, although it was warm, the cloud persisted and the sea was very rough.
We walked the length of the beach and were astonished at the amount of driftwood, cane and debris still being washed up as a result of the floods at Vera last month.
Most of the flotsam is organic matter but there is a lot of plastic around the beach and we guess there will not be a major clear up until the spring.
We enjoyed our walk though. The brooding, monochrome sky and the foaming waves pounding on the shore created a dramatic and awe-inspiring scene.
Parts of the beach were covered with shells.
Behind the beach we came upon a carpet of Androcymbium gramineum, a plant exclusive to the area which comes into flower at this time of year.
