Playa Las Lajas Outing

IMG_0031Yesterday we were invited to visit a good friend’s beach house in Las Lajas. What a great day! On the way there, we passed a large flour truck that had turned over. Flour was scattered everywhere.

It took us a little over an hour to get to the Las Lajas turnoff.

IMG_0032While most of the Las Lajas beach was filled with people, this almost private beach looked like the photo to the left.

IMG_0034With my delicate skin, I used the time to do a little reading from the comfort of a thatched area beneath some nice shade palm trees. The cool breeze was enjoyable, the conversation was enjoyable, and I didn’t get much read.

IMG_0035Our friend’s neighbor had a roaring fire going and all of a sudden I was surprised with the plate you see in this photo. I tell you, the Panamanian people are about the friendliest I have ever met.

IMG_0038As we returned to David, it was evident that nighttime celebrations were getting ready for the evening.

A great day was had by all. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
