A town on stilts..

The Rio Baker is very large by the time it meets the sea at Carleta Tortel, a most unusual seaside town completely constructed on stilts with boardwalks joining every building and the 3 ┬┤suburbs┬┤. Vehicles are left at the top of the town and access around town is just by foot or boat around the shores of town. There was no electricity as the wee town hydro scheme had dried up in the dry summer they are having.

We had left most of our loads 25km up the road and cylcled light to Tortel which was a nice break.
