This weekend, I received two more (final?) updates from Jill on the CAA group’s visit in Argentina. You can read about Saturday here, and about Sunday in tomorrow’s post.

“After a leisurely breakfast at El Rosario (such a peaceful and delightful place to stay), we set off on a short drive to Estancia San Luis, belonging to Prudencio Hernandez and his wife, Isabella. We were met at the gate by three carriages and all of us alighted the van and got on a vehicle for a short drive around the estancia. If we had tried to invent the weather, we could not have done better than today! Sunny with a pleasant breeze. WOW!

“The Hernandez daughters, their husbands, and their children joined us all for refreshments and then a wonderful lunch of a typical Argentine stew, served to each of us in a pumpkin … which we enjoyed while sitting outisde on tables under the trees. As is the custom, we took our time over lunch. Then, once again, we boarded the carriages for a much longer drive through this beautiful estancia, with a stop half way for a “picnic” (well, after all, it had been more than half an hour since we’d eaten!). Then it was back to the stables, where we were served an afternoon tea under the trees. 

“The day went so very fast, and the hospitality shown to us was simply amazing.”

Jill also sent these photos, all from the group’s visit to the beautiful Estancia San Luis:
