We have settled into our new location in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Though this isn’t really a house sit, per se, it certainly has a lot of similarities. Karen and I have embraced the quasi-isolated nature of looking after this property and are very much enjoying it. As well, our Spanish language skills are improving nicely. I am sure the people we try to talk with are convinced we are functionally illiterate, however we are noticing an improvement.
One thing is for certain, there is no lack of birds to keep us entertained. At consistent times everyday we have flights of pelicans fly by on the beach side of the property and multiple flights of parrots go by every afternoon on the inland side of the property.
On the more entertaining side are the JC lizards, or common basilisks. We frequently find these guys relaxing on the backs of the couches. I tried to capture the questionable grace they show when running. Rather funny.
