You'll be relieved to know da' beach is still there. The sand is white and the water is a beautiful shade of pale turquoise, but I have a confession.
Craig and I really don't love going to Playa Norte, especially in the hot summer months when the sun is so intense. I do love swimming in the warm Caribe water in June/July, but neither of us enjoy sitting on the beach.
We usually spend less than two hours on Playa Norte when we go. I water walk, but still haven't mastered the zen art of walking on water. After I've had my dip, Craig steps in for a few minutes to cool off and we leave.
We probably trudged through the sand of Playa Norte no more than 5 times in the three weeks we were on island in June/July.
The lilies were blooming in the white sand.
Chimbo's mural looked improved since our January trip.
Along with a new lobster door!
We go early before the crowds arrive and leave before noon. I know you must think we're crazy not to spend every day lounging on da' beach, but don't feel sorry for us. There's an attractive alternative to Playa Norte on hot summer days.
It's 10 degrees cooler in a pool on the Caribe side! Ta daaaa. Stay cool!
