For Silly Sunday: The Preacher

By IamDora
Taken a few years ago, one morning while walking along the sandbar beach in Puerto Jimenez, where I spend the best New Year's Eve ever - under a full moon (Blue moon, BTW) with an amazingly eclectic group of people, one of which happened to own a 12 person yacht. And after an amazing meal prepared by our Bolivian host, invited 19 of us aboard. Fireworks on shore and we buzzed a floating palace owned by some rich guy, The Cuban guy passed around a bottle of Toquilla and a number went overboard for a swim. I walked home at sunrise - photos on a DVD at home.

"Everybody dies; not everybody lives." It took me 58 years to realize there was more to life than getting up in the morning and going to bed at night,

Thank you, Selby. It's my imagination that usually gets me into trouble.

As for being an all night party goer - It's difficult to leave a party when it's on a boat. And I could say once in a blue moon.

1 bottle of Toquilla and 19 people - sobriety was not an issue. Absorbing that whole fantastic cultural experience was. I have sunrise photos from that New Year's day somewhere in Canada. The party, BTW, was still going on on the beach when I left.

Good for you to go with the flow like that. I used to when I was younger and even though they resulted in some of the best times I've had I seem to be much more cautious and lacking in adventure these days.

I think we all are. But that was not a wild party group; a German, a Canadian, a Cuban, a Bolivian ... A couple of other cultures thrown in and a really nice bunch of Ticos. Thank you for the award.

Such a night ...as the great New Orleans piano player Dr John used to sing .
I would Like to think that large winged bird is doing a ritualized sundance Dora ... my award for your story telling and photo abilities .
Very sad to relive the mass murder while watching the one year anniversary news coverage over the senseless shooting in Portapique N. Scotia.
Stay safe
Cheers Walt
