This is the canopy of foliage that surrounded us as we walked through the rainforest….
One of the beautiful examples of the lushness of the trees…Mother Nature put on a spectacular show on the path we chose to take.
Our walking path through the humid but lovely surroundings…
Another view of Fort Santiago
Our ferry ride to Isla Grande
The beautiful turquoise, clear waters of the Caribbean Sea found on Isla Grande.
Our driver and very dear new friend, Gustavo…
Leaving Panama City aboard the Calypso for our hour long journey to the Island of Taboga…even the Pacific waters are a beautiful deep turquoise blue and clear along the beach.
The quaint and charming village of Taboga, a fishing community.
The sand bar on Taboga that is completely covered in the afternoons by the Pacific waters when the tides come in…
Dorothy and I in the village of El Valle de Anton, a 2 mile wide crater valley and the 2nd largest crater in the world, formed 5 million years ago when the volcano blew it’s top…
The thermal pools in El Valle that are said to hold healing waters. We found the water very relaxing, lol!
Most who visit the healing springs of El Valle, also opt to take advantage of the mud that is there and that which also holds healing.
My friend, Gustavo and I. Lisa Gawlas told me prior to leaving that I would meet this wonderful man and that he carried a message for me inside his heart. She was so right on!
The sun setting over the mountains surrounding El Valle…
Sunrise over the canal on our way to the airport the morning we departed.
These are a few of my favorite pictures from our adventure in Panama. I hope you will enjoy seeing them in this format as I give you a pictorial tour of some of the wonderful places we visited. I left the country with a feeling of fullness in my heart(kinda like the fullness you feel when you hold your baby or someone you love deeply for the first time). The whole experience was life altering for me. I feel like the caterpillar who has just climbed from his cocoon transformed into the beautiful butterfly, and that, my friends, is an awesome feeling!
With Peace and Love,
