This morning the sun was shining, there were great cloud formations against a blue sky, and a very light breeze was blowing. What a wonderful day to be out.
This is one of my favorite views from the south part of town looking back towards the mountains
Panamanian speed bumps. I think all this rain hasn’t been good for the roads and there seem to be more potholes everywhere. Sometimes they repave some roads, and more often they patch them until they become a patchwork quilt of patches. Hopefully this summer there will be more road repair work. Meanwhile it tends to slow down the traffic which isn’t always a bad thing until you hit a hole yourself because you didn’t see it.
Something more beautiful than potholes
A common sight around town – a newly cut yard. Yard work was on hold for quite a while when it was raining so much, so everyone is catching up now. The egret flying away isn’t as common in town, though you can see them frequently in the country with the cows.
On the way home it looked like rain might be coming in. It didn’t rain here though until much later in the afternoon.
In the other direction were more pretty clouds and blue sky.
One thing about all those gray and rainy days is that you sure appreciate a sunny day when you get one again!

GREAT WEATHER ! LOOKS LIKE SUMMER IS ALREADY ON ITS WAY ?
They say summer will be late this year, probably at the end of December but we are definitely having much more normal weather with sunny mornings and rain later in the day.
Thank you 🙂 It’s a beautiful country so it’s easy for a photographer.
Appreciating a sunny day is definitely true. Even my cats miss them as they like to lie in the sun coming in through the windows. We’ve had some clouds and rain here too of late. And of course much cooler temps than you have there. It makes me long for spring.
Nice pictures of the countryside.
I wish we could email you down here. Your spring is going to be a while yet. But, hopefully sun will be coming through your windows some of the time.
Oh, great! Now we will never get her back on the computer! 🙂
These are the kind of days that we normally saw during our family Christmas visits to Chiriqui. No severe weather in the area, and calm winds. We are long overdue for a visit, didn’t make one last year, first time in decades. We are thinking about after the first of the year we will try for a trip, much depends on the grandkids and family stuff. Can’t wait for the grands to get big enough to travel to “abuela’s” country. Maybe we will charter our own plane and bring the whole bunch?
I go through spells. Sometimes I am out and about and don’t feel like I have anything to say on the computer. Then other days, like lately, there is something every day to write or post about.
I think Christmas is about perfect, after the rains but before the winds and heat of summer get going. If you do come down let me know. I’d love you meet you and Nena in person 🙂
Beautiful Pics!! Thank you so much for keeping me in the “Panamanian loop!” I would love to live there, but I’m not so sure I’ll ever convince my husband. I always appreciate your blogs!
Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoy the blog.
Maybe you can convince your husband to vacation here? and then spend a month? and then two… but if this really isn’t his thing you don’t want to be living here with an unhappy husband. Good luck whatever you decide.
