Life in Huanchaco is simple and easy. We feel incredibly fortunate to be here during the pregnancy. We really can’t imagine a better place to await our child.
We’ve started to do morning beach walks with the dogs. I consider this part of Stevie’s “pregnancy training“. Keep the pace, swing the arms, hut two three four… it’s a miricle she puts up with me.
In addition to the exercise, we’re also trying to eat a whole foods plant based diet with only small potions of dairy and meat. Really good for the baby. Tons of fruits and veggies. Tons of superfoods.
Below a local fisherman gets his kayak ready to launch. They call theses boats caballitos de totorro, meaning little horses of totorro. Totorro is the type of reed that’s used to make them.
Fisherman have been using these boats for thousands of years here in Peru.
I was just getting relaxed in Huanchaco when I realized that it was time to drive back up to Ecuador to renew our vehicle permit. 20 hours round trip. 4th time now! Getting really old.
At least I had company this time. My new friend Nicholas joined me for some wave hunting on the way.

And so that’s the quick update. We’ve got 90 days on a renewed permit and we’re just hangin tough waiting for our daughter to be born. We’re both getting ridiculously excited!
