One of the nice things about living in the tropics is that you can go summer activities such as sailing on the ocean. The people back in the U.S. are bundled up for winter while my friends and I are off to another sailing adventure! We boarded Pelican Eyes sailboat and headed off to Playa Blanca (White Beach) north of San Juan del Sur. We spent a few hours there beach combing and relaxing. On the return trip, we were treated to a glorious sunset! Life is good.
Halloween is here to stay in San Juan del Sur. For the fifth year in a row this American holiday has taken hold and taken off! Many of the Nicaraguans join the Americans in this festive holiday. We attended several parties Halloween night. Check out the links below of the various parties!
Thanks to David and Jo Ann Makous, The Barrio Planta Project was given 60 pairs of Converse black & white tennis shoes, donated by Nike. Now our kids in the basketball clinic have shoes, instead of running around barefoot!!
Special thanks to Dan and Cesar for posting the pics, and to Kelvin Marshall for his article about it in the Del Sur, "Air Dyani." Check out some of the pics at: http://www.pbase.com/cesar_junior/shoes
Thanks to Sara Lemieux for helping out, Jo and Dave for making it all happen and of course to our wonderful staff.
