Sunday scenes in Nicaragua

This is the time Nicaragua celebrates winning its independence from Spain in the early 1800’s. Today we could hear the sound of drums coming from town. The neighbor said there would be music and dancing starting at noon, so we decided to head into town to see what was going on.

Unfortunately the drums we heard earlier were the festivities and we were told that things ended, not started at noon. No matter, there was plenty to enjoy.

We walked around town a bit, and then decided to take the beach path back to the house. It’s funny. I have to stop myself from writing “back home”.  This house has quickly felt like home even though it is temporary and we have quickly felt comfortable in this town. Anyway, as usual, the walk home provided some nice photos.

The life of a rooster is not easy. As I have been sitting on the front terrace putting this post together, he has been scratching in the dirt looking for food, poking his head through the front gate to see what is going on in here, supervising the hens who are out with him, occasionally (without success today) trying to get lucky, keeping a watchful eye on the neighborhood, and taking off at high speed to run off any other rooster who gets too close. He keeps pretty busy.

Anyway, that was Sunday. I am always a day or two, or three behind but my first priority is exploring and enjoying what this area has to offer! It is fun sharing what I enjoy here with all of you though 🙂

  1. Oh, I’m sorry you missed the parade. The drummers are always fantastic. Things get started early on Ometepe, mainly because of the heat. It looks like we’re getting some nice rain, too. I am thrilled that you feel comfortable and can call it ‘home’. That’s exactly how we wanted you to experience Ometepe.


    • The next day we went to San Marco and landed right in the middle of their festivities so we got to enjoy some after all. Yes it has been raining every night, and sometimes a bit in the late afternoon too. We are having a great time! I’m so glad this worked out for all of us 🙂

    Your photos are so amazing. I haven’t really thought of Nicaragua or much of Central America as being high on my travel list, but clearly I need to consider it!
