Here is our pool at the Condominios Loma Linda, a fantastic development just above Highway 200, with a panoramic view of the bay. Since it’s after Semana Santa, this place is very quiet and we have had the pool to ourselves every day. It is really beautiful.
Kathy continues to work poolside on her watercolour staining technique, using sea salt to get interesting and unpredictable textures.
We decided to walk the Malecon the other day and took the very loonnnnng set of stairs down to the beach from our place. I was surprised to see that the stairs came out exactly at the entrance to the condo where Ty and I had stayed four years ago, just half a block from Los Muertos Beach.
The beach was just waking up from its night slumber, with vendors and salespeople getting their wares ready to go and limbering up their voices for the calls to buy.
We walked out on the pier to watch the boats and birds; lots of people were already lining up for the water taxis to Yelapa.
Some of the bronze sculptures along the Malecon are really starting to show their age and there’s a bit of wear and tear that the city really should repair on some of the statuary.
My attempt to climb the ladder was not nearly as elegant as Janet’s.
My favourite sculpture is the one below, of many strange creatures with multi-animaled heads and dissimilar feet.
The male figure in the group below has lost an arm; Janet kindly replaced it for him
Very intricate sand sculptures rest along the water here, with boxes for tips. If one takes a photo, one is supposed to drop a few coins into the receptacle – I obliged.
“El Gordo”, the pear-shaped fat one, is eternally eating his pear.
Our reward for the walk was beers, guacamole, and ceviche at the Mango Beach Club on Playa Camarones. This one’s for you, Ty – cheers!
