I spent the last three days at Playa del Coco and Playa Hermosa, both beaches were beautiful. I give a little edge to Playa Hermosa. I like to sit in the restaurant and have the Fish Tacos. Yummy, a couple of Margaritas and life becomes more relaxing.
I sat in the shade facing the ocean listening to the waves roll in. Nothing is more meditative than the sound water. Whether it is a rolling beach waves or a running waterfall. It is very peaceful and time seems to stop. Everything is good. You do not get bothered when the Vender tries to sell you a whistle or some pottery. Every five minutes they stop by to work at changing your not buying today mind. It helps to have two tiny dogs to keep the venders at a distance.
I made a new friend today, JC. He is the local vender for water craft fun. Want to go on a catamaran ,jet ski or go snorkeling , or maybe a sunset cruise he will set you up. He is friendly, outgoing kind of person who lets you know how to have fun. I liked him immediately.
The beach and the dogs are simpatico. My dogs LaLa and LuLu love to bark at the waves coming in and charge at the waves. They roll in the sand and chase each other around the sand. Maneuvering around the beach lovers and occasionally stopping and barking at the beach strollers . Those locals and vacationers having their morning strolls. My dogs are always looking for ways to get some attention.
Too soon it was time to head to the hotel. I take the dogs to the outside shower and wash the sand off their bodies. Sit on the concrete planter box until my dogs are dry. About an hour later we head to the car and drive ten kilometers to our hotel. It was a fun morning at the beach. Being a person of light skin, I tend to burn easily even with sun protection on. I go to the beach early before the heat gets to intense. Have you ever gone to the beach just to see a sunrise or sunset? One of the great aspects of being retired, you make time your own. Owners of your own time.
Until next time , Puta Vida!
