Playa La Barqueta – a Visit to the Beach

It’s always fun to have someone new around because you have a good reason to visit all of your favorite spots! Kayla, granddaughter of some good friends, was staying with us for a few days and we had such a good time. Since we visited the mountains one day, it only made sense to visit a beach another day. Of course, when at the beach one must take advantage of the beautiful spot by taking some photos. We were lucky that it was a picture perfect day!

It’s been a very interesting week! First we had Kayla here which was great fun. Her grandparents had just arrived and settled in. We were barely out the door to take her to them in Boquete when the girls on bicycles arrived. That is another story that will be coming soon, a story of travel and courage and inspiration that I can’t wait to share. My friend Emma, a fellow blogger, has just arrived for a short vacation with Holly, another fellow blogger. In the middle of all this I had a birthday and a great celebration dinner with them, other fellow bloggers Cindy, and Rona, and a bunch of other great friends.

Yep, a very interesting week indeed, and it’s not over yet!

    A wonderful bird is the pelican,
    His bill will hold more than his belican,
    He can take in his beak
    Enough food for a week
    But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

    What beautiful pictures of the beach! Thanks for your blog – I love reading it – hoping to be down in Panama for awhile this coming fall. Looking for the right spot to spend some lengthy quality time down there. David and area around seem to be my kind of country. Not an aficionado of HOT weather, so am looking for places that have some altitude. How high is David?,


    • Thanks so much, glad you enjoy the blog 🙂
      David is pretty close to sea level and considered quite hot by many, and also humid most of the time. You might like something higher like Boquete, Volcan, or even some of the smaller towns between here and the mountains. If you want to be around more expats and/or don’t speak much Spanish, Boquete might be a good place.
