We left SP Feb 4. It's February 7 and as I look at my pictures of paradise, it all seems weeks ago. First day after arrival - we went fishing - 13 people on 4 boats, dividing boats between mangroves and reef, off to catch our dinner for a few nights. Heavy wind, tough fishing, but we all arrived back at our dock with various levels of success and all sorts of "our guide was the best" stories- and plenty of fish for tacos and grilled fish several nights. What if the weather had been perfect? Fish overload? Thanks Steve at Coconets for finding these guides for us and getting them there right on que.
Casa de Lisa and Redonda are awesome. A private pool, a private dock, a grounds caretaker, a fantastic maid, mercy, I'm in heaven. Simon took care of our food/booze stock - perfect service.
A bunch took off for cave tubing and zip lining with Suya Tours (can't compare Suya to anyone else as we've always used them...will never know any difference unless they close up - we love Carlos) - they had a blast, got first class service on the trip. Others fished the dock, not much luck - one bone fish. The water was stirred up much of the week due to wind. More reason to drink beer and sip rum punch.
We did a lot of our own cooking so can't report much on food. However, had another lunch at Wet Willies and had great fritters and quesadillas. A town venturer brought Waraguma Lobster Burritos back for the group as an appetizer one night...oh my. I love that place.
Shopped for jewelery gifts, found a cool little jeweler on Middle St, always like the jewelry store at Fidos.
The guys went conching and lobstering with Suya.....they made our ceveche for us....ya'll....to die for! We also made our own lobster and conch fritters. I shopped for the vegies at several small shops in town and, well, for us cooking types, that is so cool.
Caught JJW for his shows. He was having a big time and so were we.
I made a lot of pics last year, this year mostly of our people having a good time. So, I'll just leave you with the narrative. Oh yeah. There was a full moon Thursday night. 350 or so sleeps.....
