A few weeks back, I was visiting the beaches to see what, if any, damage Hurricane Paula had done to the shorelines. While at North Beach, I took the opportunity to snap a few updated pictures of the progress of the palapa at Maria del Mar.
This thing is huge. I really like that they left some of the original trees growing inside. Not too sure how they will fare with no sunlight, but they certainly add an interest. **
This is the palm tree they left. Very impressive.
They literally picked up and moved one of the front swing bars to the back to creat this new bar area. I was a little puzzled by the smooth wall behind it.
The view from the above bar looking out to the ocean.
From the shore back to the bar and palapa.
As I was leaving, I noticed this new sign. It may explain the smooth wall behind the bar. I'll have to go back later and check and it out. Certainly an interesting concept, whatever it is.
