Veendam Day 15 - Puerto Montt, Chile

Very pretty...maybe we'll get to actually see this--Petrohue Falls in the Lake District.

Puerto Montt is the capital of what is known as Region X in Chile. It is located on the northern tip of Relocanvi Inlet, in a bay protected on the west by Tenglo Island. It is a main port and gateway into the Chilean lake and volcano district. This small provincial city has undergone significant growth fueled by salmon farms, forestry, the fishing industry and service related companies. The original German settlers left their mark, as the city and surrounding areas still have a very distinctive European flavor. Just outside of the city of Puerto Montt, lies the Lake District, home to the Puerto Montt wealthy and privileged. City streets are lined with beautiful rose arbors and dotted with small cafes and trendy restaurants.
This sounds like our kind of I sit writing this on December 1.
Happy birthday today to Jason. We send you lots of love and best wishes...we'll lift a toast in your honor tonight! Life is good!!!
