Afternoon at the Beach

We decided it was time for an ocean fix, so spent the afternoon at North Beach, which is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the Casita. We can see it from the patio, way off in the distance. It was almost deserted, certainly a change from the crowds during Samana Santa, and so it was very peaceful and relaxing. We had lunch at Lupe's, a Palapa which was recommended by our friends Nora and Omer and the food was every bit as good as they said. We shared grilled fish filets and tortilla soup, which were delicious, then walked along the beach for miles just enjoying the feel of the sand between our toes. On the way home, we turned the corner and met this little guy, just strolling down the sidewalk.

By the way, the group strolling down the beach was one family, all men. Guys day out, I guess!
