Reflections of Carnival 2015

Panama Carnival Photo Slide Show – HOPE to be there in person one day

Our Third Life-Pedasi, Panama

This year I did not go to the Carnival festivities very much, only to see the floats go by on a couple of occasions. Nor did I take too many pictures even when I was there. Having been in the parade when we first visited in 2012 and attending most days last year in 2014, our first year since we moved here (which I previously wrote about in my blog), I really wanted to stay away from the crowds most of the time this year. It has been over a week since Carnival ended, but I thought I would share a little of the festivities that occurred here in Pedasí, especially for those who do not live in Panama or have not read about it.

Pedasi Beaches

Great Photos and Personal Remembrances of a Friend, enjoying Panama.

The Panama Adventure

The southern part of the Azuero Peninsula of Panama is known for the beautiful beaches. Since I was down there visiting my good friend and fellow blogger,  we decided to pick up another friend and blogger and enjoy a visit to some of the beaches in the area. It was a most enjoyable morning with great company, and the scenery was so beautiful. I had a hard time deciding on a reasonable number of pictures to share because I have so many that I like.

I thought Allison was going to be away but her plans were delayed by a day, so I got to visit with her and her family on Friday evening. She has recently moved to Pedasi with her husband and two daughters. Look for “the Panama Pause”…

A Surprise Day Of Relaxing…

Kudos, for the Hard Work and Great Progress in 2 years, Short or Long depending upon which end of the shovel that You were on.

Let The Adventure "Continue"!

We’ve been living in our new casita since January 8th. We actually began working up here February of 2014. The first project that Scott tackled was to build retaining walls and drains. With the crazy rains that we get here we realized that the first thing we needed to address was drainage and so that was the very first step in our project. So here we are, a year into our project and boy, when I look around at all the work that’s been done up here It is really quite remarkable. In only a year we’ve already put in most of the infrastructure, water, gas, electricity is nearly done, built two structures and are starting the final one, the main house.
