Thanks, everyone, for your great feedback about the Postcard series! Barbara has enjoyed riding copilot in the WordPress seat, and one of these days she might join us with tales of her own! The riverhouse sits ‘one curve back’ from the mouth of the river, and during the rainy season, an amazing amount of debris washes past the house and later finds its way to the Playamart shelves! As the pelicans fly, the beach is very close; by land, one walks parallel to the beach about a mile to that petite village of La Division.
Jaime, one of my downstream neighbors, often sets out crab traps and promised to bring us five dollars’ worth manana. Little did any of us know that strong rains were in our future!
Leaving the serene setting of the river behind, we can walk to town for an injection of society. A trip to Jama does not seem complete without a ride in a mototaxi, and cheerful Carlos enjoyed giving our weary feet a break!
Conveniently located near the center of town, Restaurant Exclusivo never fails with a beautiful presentation of food for a fair price. This fish filet dinner cost $4.50, complete with salad for two and fresh-squeezed orange juice!
We were provided an exclusive floor show while dining at Restaurant Exclusivo; a precious young girl proudly displayed her daring prowess on the bicycle as she careened around the tables, out the door, then back in for an encore!!
Back at the riverhouse, the studio floor is progressing. Are you ready for a sneak peek?
Hopefully one of you can help us with a name for this painting. Any suggestions?
To prevent too many colors warring against each other, we selected blue to blanket the area around the turtle.
(Barbara’s been too busy painting to add to this post, but she will surely have lots to say after she’s figured out a way to break free from her painting duties!!!)
“Tropical Turtle/Tropical Tortuga’ seems quite lacking for a name for this baby; does anyone have a suggestion for a name? Are you pleased with the painting so far?
