    Off to the Pacific Ocean!

    February 15, 2017 in Panama ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Santa Catalina to be precise. And our rooms have kitchens but no bathrooms!

    Long drive south. Dozed most of the way. Getting hot again now so out will come my over priced dress. I need to get the wear out of it as I have just seen the Australian conversion on my visa statement.

    I might have to live in it when I get back to Sydney.

    Some of the group are making dinner tonight for something different.

    Our cabanas are very cute - all in different colours. Its like being in a dolls house. Mine is orange.

    The beach is ok - more for surfers. Black sand. Its about a 5 minute walk from the hotel which is in the middle of no where.

    I have a quick dip but the waves are too much hard work and I want to rest so find a place with a view and settle in. No internet though. It takes about half an hour to get served. Fries and a smoothie!

    Tomorrow we are going on a full day tour which is good otherwise I might go abit stir crazy here!

    No internet no tv no book air condiitioning that doesn't work properly and in the middle of no where without a bathroom. Not happy.

    A day of rest

    February 14, 2017 in Panama ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Chill day. Got up at lunchtime after abit of internet time. Lunch then a nap!

    Went for a walk in the afternoon - so peaceful and the light was lovely.

    Ordered dinner for 7.45pm and at 8.35pm still waiting! Chased up my glass of red and they said they had run out of glasses! I offered to wash one myself!

    Might fall asleep at the restaurant table!

    The dog photo is for you Luca - he came up in the jeep with us and his name is Scooter.

    In the trees!

    February 12, 2017 in Panama ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    This country has been a pleasant surprise. Today we set off for Boquete and will be staying in Boquete Tree Trek Mountain Resort about 7km out of town.

    But not before I have two banana smoothies for breakfast! I think I have a smoothie problem!

    Lovely scenery on the way. We stop in town for abit to book tours, go to the supermarket and of course have another smoothie.

    Bit of a rough ride up to the resort on a huge open jeep.

    And then heaven greets us. Resort is gorgeous right up in the cloud forest and we are in lovely little cabins. Restaurant has really good food, a fireplace and serves smoothies! What more could I ask for!


    The type of boat we have used all over Central America.
    We stopped at a view point to have a look at a dam and the wire fence was so high this was the only photo you could get!
    The cat photo is for you Virge!
