El Matal, Jama, Manabi Ecuador
My friend Dady and I visited El Matal late yesterday out of concern for the property owners at El Matal. The waves were dramatic, but it seemed that the worst was behind for this month.
This morning a friend wrote to say, “We got slammed last night…” so I am sharing a few images from this morning and will be back with more updates.
This reminds me of how people suddenly flock to an estate sale – or when a restaurant or store announces that they plan to close their doors due to slow business. Now that it’s almost too late to help, concerned officials have arrived.
I am almost finished with a story about one of the owners, who is sitting beside me right now because her home — well, let’s save that for the next post.
Thanks, all of you for your concern. It’s very serious here, and we hear there’s a swell coming from Hawaii. Does anyone know about this? The last “north swell” arrived almost two years ago and was the one that took most of the beach.
