Ecuador vignette tres

I thought I had a picture of the toilet when I downloaded..will have to check for it.  Beautiful wood toilet seat and cover – I’ve never seen one like it.  Check out the window above the bathroom door – Christa said at night when the bathroom light was on, it was a beautiful glow.

We spent a considerable amount of time while at the beach….at the beach.  I think it was 3 total days – in a hammock in our cabana from after breakfast until near supper.

Our entertainment

This is me – just under our deck at the butterfly suite…OMG I look like a tourist and I’m not talking about my lack of  leg color!!

It was just crazy beautiful and very quiet and peaceful – many times we were the only ones on the beach. 

The city of Porta Lopez is at the corner from where I was sitting to where the mountains sit to the west..easy walking distance from Hosteria Mandala.  Lots of shops, a fish market – actually where they unload the fish from the boats–and several restaurants.  We drove thru a couple of times but didn’t actually get out of the car.

Aureloio and Maja have 5 large dogs who sleep on the veranda during the day.  Each day we spent on the beach, we would see Aurelio taking all of the dogs for a walk along the beach…I would always a life.  The fellow above was christened Marmaduke by us.  He was my favorite…spent the afternoons laying in either the men’s or women’s restroom…a nice place to get away from the crowds and get a good nap in before dinner.

Then it was time to head back to Quito.

Back tomorrow…

  2. Wow – it is gorgeous!  I can’t even wrap my mind around going to a beach and no one else being there.  That sounds wonderful. That sunset is so beautiful.  Did you see a million stars?  Of course, you probably see lots of stars at home.Have a good night and weekend!Oh, are you done playing Words with Friends?
