I had to let it happen, I had to change...

We decided to make a day of it and took the Seacat from the Buquebus Ferry port across the River Plate to Uruguay and visit the old part of a beautiful town of Colonia del Sacramento

It was only a short ferry ride from Buenos Aires and all the nice restaurants were within 2-5 minutes walk.

We walked along Avenida General Flores to the Barrio Historico. Tootled about the picturesque squares and water-front. Climbed up the beautiful Colonia lighthouse and then settled down for some delicious supper at the excellent El Buen Suspiro.

We sat in a lovely courtyard eating plates of beautiful home-made cheeses, chorizo, salami, home-made cheese & onion and aubergine tartlets and home-make pickles. Including the two bottles of wine we had (which were both local and superb) all it was a steal at just £20-£25 a head. One of the best meals we're ever had.

We strolled back down to the ferry port and took the hour long trip back with smiles on our faces and full tummies. Cattle-class was fully booked so we ended up going first-class. A perfect ending to a perfect day.
