Even stronger wind so dropped the top most of the way down. That stopped some of the noise and the rocking. The heater did not start, fan issues. A walk towards the beach was perilous as when the wind blew up from the beach we could hardly stand against it.
The water was being whipped off the lake, gust must be about 60 knots. We even had spray on the windshield about 50m away.
An interesting process of dropping the lid as when the wind rushed past it was sucking all the canvas outside.
A drive to a look out over Lago Belgrano followed by a short but cold and very windy walk.
We didn't know that there was such a bird as a black necked white swan.!
We also walked to the small lake to see the birds, a great little hut to sit in and watch through windows. Didn't see much but there are black necked white swans here, flamingos and a few other geese and ducks.
Drove slowly out of the parque with a strong tail wind. Hoping we would not have to siphon fuel from the top tank. We should nearly make it.
Well the wind was doing such a good job as well as driving at 65km/hr on the dirt and 75km/hr on the high way we got to the fuel station without the fuel light on.
Filled up, then sat and used the stations wifi.
Bought a few fresh food items and headed out to lake Cardiel where we camped on the side of the road facing into the wind. We were still well above the lake. Still the heater will not start but we heated water for a shower.
