Two weeks ago we escaped for a couple of days to the beach for some much needed R&R. The Southern Right Whales come right up to the beach and roll lazily in the surf for hours.
The whales – estimated at up to 2,000 in the gulf – are immense and beautiful, and there is nothing like a free whale watch from 30 feet away on the shore, all day long if you want it. It’s my new favorite beach in the whole wide world (and I don’t even likethe beach. I know, I’m odd). Puerto Madryn is also the nicest town I’ve ever been to in Argentina, hands down.
Here is an excellent piece on the importance of rest on the mission field, as Christians, as humans – anywhere. I wish we had been better at this our first year here.
