Hammocking at La Division

Hammocking at La Division

Life remains at an easy forward motion here in Ecuador’s Manabi Province!  The above image reflects the tranquil attitude of Sarah Dettman’s group that toured the area on Friday.  After a picnic and a little practice at the art of hammocking, we met the other half of the group at Canoa Beach Hotel – an hour’s drive down the coast.

Early that morning Jonathan Hall and his part of the Ecuador Expat Journey group flew from Quito to Manta and drove to Canoa, while Sarah brought her new friends by land to Pedernales, over the line of the equator and to the Jama area.  

Sarah rests!  That's a first!

After an enriching 24 hours with all of them, I hurried back to the briar patch of Jama, where a post-painting competition was underway.

I’m about to be a ‘street walker’ and hope to record some great images of the final day of the post-painting event here in Jama Ecuador!
