I hadn’t been out on my bike for SO long! I don’t know, inertia, laziness, busy… but yesterday Joel gave me the boost I needed to get out there. We didn’t go far but it felt great! I took my camera so here is a little bit of what we saw.
There is a new neighborhood going in not far from ours. Just across from our neighborhood is another of single family homes but they are building an apartment building there. It doesn’t seem like it will fit in but we’ll see what it’s like when it’s done. The last photo is the hill with the cross on top that you can see as you go up the road to Boquete. We are on the back side of that hill. It is the height of summer dry season and you can see how brown and dry everything looks.
There are some gorgeous trees at this time of year. The most spectacular are the yellow ones that are about done for the season, but pink and white ones are still blooming and looking beautiful.
There are quite a few other things blooming as well.
By March I am always tired of dry season. I don’t like everything brown and dead, and the constant heat and sun is getting old. But, there are upsides like all these beautiful flowers. If I whine, remind me of all the people in the northeast USA who are getting a blizzard!
(Bug warning below!) This noisy bird was sitting on our front fence the other day, and one night I came out to see this cool bug sitting on one of my solar lights. It was very nice and let me get as close as I wanted, use a flash, turn it this way and that, and it didn’t even move.
Just another day in the life of a retired expat in Panama.
