its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Feb. 14 - Beach Day

“A Day At The Beach Restores the Soul.” –Unknown

Today we hiked towards the west on our beach (Seven Seas Beach). The trail wound through the mangrove and along the water to two wonderful secluded beaches. The first one we visited was Playa Colora. It's a little known beach at the far left of the Seven Seas cove. The beach was wide and dropped sharply into the sea. The waves were rough, but the beach was beautiful and very private. We enjoyed the walk along the water, but it wasn't a good place for swimming or for a picnic, so we moved on to Playa Escondida.

Playa Escondida is a little further down the trail and faces the west, so today it was very calm. We did a little beach combing, a little swimming and enjoyed a picnic lunch in the shade of some mangrove trees. It was a nice way to spend Valentine's Day together...especially since we met on a beach.

Looking south towards the mountains...we did finally get wet. But it didn't rain for long and then the sun was out again. 
Some of the the things we saw along the trail today.
Coming back the tide was down and we could walk along the beach instead of through the mangrove.
