to the equator and back

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Panama! Here is the view that my faulty dyer cedar creeks had while I was there! This is on the patio of our friends' lovely home there! What a place! Right on the the ocean (as if the pool isn't enough!). We were there for 8 fabulous days and did we see some great things! Here a just a few of the highlights:



...beautiful flowers......


This is one of the many Kuna Indians that inhabit Panama.


Chickens............everywhere!



This is a 4 month old sloth named "pippin". I was so taken with the sloth that I forgot to get the owners name!


Geckos where you least expect them.....


...did I mention they have this canal?

Only one slight problem while we were there. Meet Madeline....


Think she looks guilty? Here's why:


It seems that Madeline loves BMFA LSS as much as I do and she tried to take it home with her. Luckily, Bob found her with it in the driveway and after much untangling I was able to finish my Shetland Triangle Shawl.

Let's just say that Madeline is a lucky dog!




This is all of us on our last night there (from left to right): me, Bob, Tillman (the hubby) and Bob's fab wife Dorothy! We had such a great time, my face and stomach still hurts from all the smiling and laughing! What a great time and what wonderful friends!

    Hibiscus & geckos! Reminds me of Hawaii, but then they're both tropical places.

    Glad you're back safely. It looks like you had a great time.
