I woke early to a spectacular sunrise. I laid there watching the sky turn all shades of pinks, purples and blues. Didn’t even get up to take any pictures. But we found that Yelapa does this quite often.
We slept downstairs that first night, under the mosquito netting but we found it was just too hot. There is always a nice breeze in the mornings and found it was even cool enough for a sweater.
Upon venturing out, we went a little trigger happy. There are so many opportunity’s for taking pictures.
I called this “Main Street” because it looked like one.
There were dogs everywhere. Every restaurant had it’s requisite dog!
This is a typical restaurant. bright and colorful, always outdoors but usually under a roof.
Shambala’s was the place we found had free wi-fi, great margaritas and good breakfast. Raymond and Violette were the owners and so gracious and accomodating. This was our rest and regroup place. They had a resident cat and dog!
On our way to discover La Playa (the beach) we ended up on a path leading out of the village. Kevin decided it was time to cross so off came the shoes and we walked across to the path on the other side. It was a pretty shallow river.
Once across the river we headed back down towards the beach. Surely there had to be a faster way to get there!
The beach! Literally!
I took this picture to show how coarse the sand was.
Colorful vendors selling their wares.
Or a picture with a gigantic iguana! I was content with just a photo of the punk-rocker looking lizard! This guy was about 6-foot long.
There was more on this first day but I didn’t get any pictures later in the day. Quite frankly, we were tired from the flights and getting up too early the day before. I do remember our dinner…. it was fish taco’s at a bakery. Not a meal I’d recommend! The bakery stuff was delicious.
