Las Olas

Panama ~ Week II
The surf forcast was looking really good for the second week of our trip so Drew and I went back to Playa Barqueta to take advantage of the beach break at Las Olas resort.

A typical day at Las Olas would start early. It's impossible to sleep in when you can see perfect waves from bed! The water was really glassy first thing in the morning so it was easier to paddle out.

In between sets, we could look a little ways out and see dolphins jumping around, and some really big fish splashing all around us. Drew even saw a couple sting rays cruise by.

After surfing it was siesta time.

. . . and then an afternoon swim in the pool :)

Practicing Spanish at the swim up bar

Evenings were my favorite time to go for a run on the beach.

The sunsets were incredible . . .

Then happy hour, dinner, sleep, wake up and do it all over again.

My only complaint is that the week was over WAY to fast!

When I retire, you'll know where to find me . . .

somewhere on a beach in Panama :)
