We spent a week wandering the gritty streets of Leon, Nicaragua in January. But when we travel, we're never far from the beach. It was only twenty minutes by car to Playa Las Poneloya and Playa Las Penitas. Or, if you are traveling by horse and wagon, as most Nicaraguans do, well, it might take a little longer. We came in the afternoon. We came at sunset. And we came at my favorite time of day. Morning. And we walked.
We did the free beach StairMaster.
We bird watched.
We looked for sea shells. Sand dollars seem to be prolific in Nicaragua.
We reached the end.
We even had afternoon tea.
We enjoyed the curious.
We shared the sand with ponies.
We saw a few humans in awe of the ocean. In other words, we found our people.
We watched a free ball game.
We watched. And reflected. Literally.
And lastly, we brought a Tona or two and watched sunset from the pastel stairs.
We were happy.
