We decided to visit another local beach today. Lenga is a strip of beach located northwest of Hualpén, and along with fun in the sun offers a variety of seafood restaurants. It was about a 45 bus ride from our apartment, but I’d estimate it to be about 20 minutes away by car.
Seafood + Aaron and Rachel = happy. We ended up eating at La Barca, which came highly recommended — rightly so. I had fried fish and fries (yeah, not too adventurous) and Rachel had pastel de jaiba (a dish with crab and cheese). ¡Qué rico!
Even though we’re in the middle of summer, the air is too cold and windy (see Rachel’s sweatshirt in the videos below) to give us any desire to enter the water.
Take a look:

The birds kept nose diving into the water in hopes of catching lunch.
