we set out after breakfast for a long drive nearly due east from Filadelfia with an intermediate stop at a beautiful preserve called Laguna Salada and then on to Puerto Casado (La Victoria, on some maps) where we crossed the Paraguay River on a ferry to the small town of Tres Cerritos (three hills). We drove from there about 8 km to the northeast to the river town of ValleMi and spent the night at a local hotel called Posada Isabel.

Laguna Salada is a sanctuary for many species of birds (more than 50 were represented at the time of our visit). From a vantage point on a covered platform some 15 feet above ground DSCN4971.JPG we watched the birds and had a nice picnic lunch (there are captions on most of the photos) DSCN4946.JPGDSCN4947.JPGDSCN4952.JPGDSCN4961.JPGDSCN4965.JPGDSCN4954.JPG

We arrived at the river around 4:30 PM and took a rickety ferry with room for only one vehicle at a time across (actually a few Km downstream)20190103_174856_resized_1.jpg20190103_175830_resized_1.jpg20190103_175507_resized_1.jpg to a little town on the opposite side.
