Adios Las Olas...Hola Pedasi

Beach to Village

sunny 86 °F

As we packed up to leave Las Olas we knew that we would miss the beautiful beach and crashing waves, but it was time to move on. Pedasi was a 5.5 hour drive from Las Olas, it probably wouldn´t have taken so long under normal conditions but road construction, post carnival traffic and getting lost in Las Tablas didn´t help. When we made to the hotel, cold beers were on order.

A recommendation from a friend in Panama City brought us to the Pedasito Boutique Hotel and Spa. A great recommendation! This quaint hotel offers bed and breakfast rooms and regular hotel rooms with breakfast. Our room had a small patio over looking their pool and back courtyard. On Friday evenings they serve sushi in the courtyard area. The tuna is fresh that day and prepared by an able sushi chef. I would post a few pictures but this is the land of very slow computers and uploading pictures is a PITA! So no pictures on this entry, might get some up at our next stop.

Pedasi is a small village about two miles from the beach. We´ve visited four beaches in the area and enjoyed all of them. One of the beaches is the home of the Panama surfboarding championships, not quite California or Hawaii but good surfing for those that do. The night that we arrived in Pedasi they were still celebrating carnival. We enjoyed a brief moment of the carnival parade as one of the queens was driven through town for one more curtain call.

While sitting on the various beaches in Costa Rica and Panama we´ve read a bunch of books. And for my favorite book blogger www.amusedbybooks.com, I´ve read eight books. The best one Bill O´Rielly´s Killing Lincoln. A great book and historically very interesting. The other books I´ve read aren´t the genre Amused likes but most were enjoyable. Kindles are a great way to travel with reading material.

Later today we are leaving Pedasi and heading to Coronado, Panama. Getting down to our last few days before the trip home. Hard to think about!
