Default Revisiting older (and warmer!!) picture albums (some on topic)

While at dinner with friends Thursday, the subject of Isla Contadora, one of Las Perlas, the
Pearl Island where “Survivor” was filmed, came up along with several other Panamanian topics
so I though I’d circulate these links to online photo albums. Maybe they’ll help us feel warmer
on such a cold day..

Debbie and I spent three days on Isla Contadora a couple years ago

The conversation also covered a badly run-down surf camp that had been purchased by the
son-in-law of some friends and refurbished as a private residence and weekender. The funny
thing is that I had been intrigued by online sales ads for the this place before we moved to
Panama and for a short time was all hot and bothered about buying it or someplace similar
and doing a make-over. We decided that we really needed to be in the city, but we wound
up being able to enjoy it anyway without all the heartache that went into the conversion…

All in all there are about two dozen different albums covering Albuquerque, diving trips in
Honduras and Panama, and just “stuff”. The whole set can be found here.. PictureTrail - Gallery

It’s best to select pics from the left side menu or use the forward and backward arrows above
the pics to navigate. The slide show feature reduces the picture size a lot.

Enjoy…
