Fishing in the Dunes
Updated: Feb 4
Uruguay sun is paint-stripper hot. Along the Atlantic coast, between Capo Polonia and Valizas, dune desert stretches. In December, Sealion mating season, the bodies of injured males float past on stormy currents washing up towards Brasil. If you want to know what silence is like, sit here for awhile in between the muffling humps of sand. Silence sounds like a sea within, blood flow echoing inside the skeleton shell.
