Hokey is Okay for the happy folks in Puerto Lopez!

We went for a Sunday drive and ended going through the jungle and dropping into the resort village of Puerto Lopez.  It was lunch time, so we decided to go to the Hotel Pacifica for good food and people watching...

Arriving in the main part of town, we found the street blocked for a parade, with watchers and participants laughing and talking while they waited for things to get underway.  This was strictly a secular activity, but I didn't see an obvious reason for this parade.  No out of town schools, just one entry stressing recycling, and the rest, mostly dancing and singing in costume.

Take a look at the crowd in just one place...

 

 

 

 

 

 I took one shot of about five of these young drummers, and then all the rest wanted in, so this is all of them...cute, happy young men...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This cool daddy took an opportunity to give his little girl a fun burro ride...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 After the parade and dancing, we went for lunch, where all the staff know Coquita...still the same good food and nice views of the beach...

We took a walk on the beach, and noticed these unusual sights in the water...this is one of the gun boats that passed our way last month...

 

The girls at the restaurant told us that this was a marine lab studying fish...quien sabe?

 

I took this shot along the boardwalk, 'cause it was colorful...

 Another Sunday drive has turned into a pretty darn good time...
