Pleasantly Puttering Around Paracas — Part 2

Ursula and I didn’t spend a lot of time in Paracas.  We had other items on the agenda this stop.  Nevertheless, we had a great time sightseeing and photographing both the town and the approach into the town.  Here is the Jose de San Martin Monument overlooking Paracas:

The port serving Paracas is only 3.2 miles/5.1 kilometers from town . . . in a direct line across Paracas Bay.  By road it’s more like 12.5 miles/20.1 kilometers, or a little over fifteen minutes by bus.

As for the town itself, I found the colorful offshore boats held most of my photographic interest:
