beach bar update
Tomorrow, Miguel will be 'fundiendo' (throwing concrete) on what will become the floor of the plunge pool at the -- yet to be named -- beach bar on Lil Bay Beach. As you can see in the photo above, the saltwater pool will be approximately twelve feet away from the actual ocean. We're building on a solid rock foundation (thanks to the adjacent cliff) so it should be quite strong. The saltwater will be pumped directly from the sea, filtered, heated slightly using a solar heater, and then allowed to cascade down the cliff side into the pool creating a stunning tropical effect.

This is the goal we're working towards.
