Five glorious days at Estancia Don Joaquîn left us five pounds heavier and with some unforgettable memories! We were spoiled the entire time! I thought we were going to a place where Tim and Ryan would be fishing and Kylie and I could go on a trail ride if we wanted. As it turns out they are all about riding but fishing is also an option. They have recently opened a fishing lodge on the river. We were lucky Tim didn't know about that! Every morning and each afternoon Kylie and I went on long rides with Angie and her fantastic gauchos, Fabian and Jose. We spent at least 3-4 hours on horseback per day. Kylie was cantering through the fields by the last couple of days!
Tim and Ryan joined us on a couple of rides but their time was mainly spent fishing for golden dorado. Golden dorado are known as aggressive fish but just how aggressive was what Tim learned very quickly! They do not take kindly to being held up for a photo op. Nor do they want to let go once they latch on. Just after the picture was taken this guy got even with Tim. In every other fish photo you will note that Ramon is holding the fish.....wise move Halter boys!
