I went camping with
friends at Kalaloch a
few weekends ago.
We got lucky - the
weather was lovely.
Sunset is Kalaloch and the others are at Ruby Beach. We had Razor clams for dinner. WOW! So yummy.

Market day in La Penita. We also had a great lunch of 3 tacos for 24 pesos, about $2 and a beer for a dollar. Beachcombed down to the breakwater. The tide was low so the estuary had very little water. People were just wading through the little stream to get to Guyabitos. We walked on up to the Bridge of Life - suspension bridge built by norteamericanos. This bridge is for walkers and bicyclists and is great as otherwise you have to walk across the bridge on the highway where there is little room and is very dangerous as most cars are going about twice the 40km per hour that is posted. I was proud of myself for making it all the way up the hill. The pool beckoned and was so welcome as i was just about ready to have a heat stroke. We startd out at 8am and got back up the hill about 2 so that was a lot of walking!
Lovely and warm again today. Olivia and I met with some avid hikers to try the 2.5 hour hike in the Punta Raza ridge area. We were immediately way behind the others who were out of sign and hearing. We missed the turn off as it was occupied by several cows, which at the time made us a bit nervous. Luckily for us we met another of the group who was on his first hike too and who had been down the trail we were on exploring. He told us we were not on the same path as the others. Olivia and I decided to go back and try again some other day when we were a bit more prepared. It was great to see where the trail started though and the jungle was so dense and deep in parts of it. Loved it.

Here are some more photos to go with the last post. The second one is the actual RV spots. By Dec 1 the little patch of weeds between the two spots will be planted with a hibiscus and some white ginger. The third shot is of the inside of the entry gate showing the little door for when you are just going for a walk to the beach or store or whatever.
Nice indoor shower which is in the laundry room. There is a toilet and washer in this room too.
The last photo shows the outdoor shower which is great for just getting the sand and salt water off you and your towels etc after a swim in the warm warm ocean!

Here are a few photos of my new RV Park in Los Ayala. It's very secure - completely gated and has a full time on site manager. The spaces will be ready by Dec 1. The first photo shows the outside of the entrance gate and wall, second is the outdoor shower, third is on the street about a block away from the place, and fourth a typical scene on the beach which is two blocks away from the spots.
