Catching A Wave

Regular readers will be very familiar with the rock formation across from my house that I refer to as Crocodile Rock. But did you know that it has a cousin, just a bit to the north?

Meet Iguana Rock.

This is a favorite fishing spot for local lads and Gringo retirees alike. I think it is more to practice their skills or pass the time than to actually catch anything.

While looking out at the ocean that day, I happened to spy some movement in the water directly in front of my house. This is about the normal size of waves on a normal day.

Two of our local fun seekers where out there with boogie boards.

And evidently having the time of their lives.

I like how they even donned surfing wear. Perhaps to protect them from the jagged rocks that lie very close to the surface?

At any rate, it was fun to watch them having fun.

When we were staying at Luna Turquesa towards the end of June, three boys cut through alongside the house in wet suits with boogie boards and went into the the water. They had a great time riding the tropical wave! I also got a photo of a surfboard chained to a palm on Playa Norte this trip. I wonder if someone's paddle boarding with it?

I don't think I'd ever get tired of the wonderful view you have.
