Crocodiles, Turtles and Iguanas ...oh my! November 1, 2016

 
Just another day in paradise....
 
 
 
We always can spot lots of sandpipers..... 
 

 
But one has to walk down Playa la Ropa a bit
to spot the crocodiles, turtles and iguanas...

 
There were oodles of turtles swimming amongst
the five or so crocodiles....evidently turtles are not
on the crocs menu...?

 
At the same place we spotted about 7 iguanas
sunbathing on the hotel's roof....

 
and the resident parrot was enjoying the beach... 

 
 
 
Everyday I draw with watercolor pencils ...
amusing myself and relaxing while under the palapa!

 
 


 
On our way to dinner downtown I spotted this kitty...

 
Note the comment on the bottom of the menu...
"Gourmet food in white plastic chairs"

 
We might be sitting in white plastic chairs,
but the food is very tasty and they serve
some of the best Margueritas ever!
 

 
Another night....another sunset!

 
And this morning?
Tah dah! Our hotel's pool!
Have a great day!
Besos y embrasos a todos!

Such a fun place to be! The crocs may just not be hungry, and if that's the case, the turtles had better beware!
