The view of where we were heading
Me posing, halfway there
We stopped for a coffee at one of the cafes on the promenade enjoying the sun, which had decided to make an appearance, then set off again to explore the rest of the promenade.
This is the view from the other end of the promenade looking back to where we started.
We had been told it was possible to walk the coast road from Village Playa Blanca to our hotel at Pappagayo Beach, so as there was no rush we decided to do that. About ten minutes into our walk brought us to the new Marina Rubicon, very stylish with a wide range of interesting shops, bars and restaurants and a vast array of moored boats.
It happened to be one of the days when the marina hosts a busy street market, so we had a mooch round the stalls and I bought a silver bead for my bead bracelet and a small mosaic elephant to add to my collection. As we were passing through the market right down by the waterfront we noticed a bar where there was a singer and stopped to listen.
Anyway, about three beers later he had finished his spot so we decided it was time we continued our walk back to the hotel. Here's some photos of what we saw on the way back.
It was a long walk up hill and down dale, we thoroughly enjoyed it but we were starving by the time we got back to the hotel at around 4 p.m. Luckily the snack bar was open so we grabbed a burger and a drink before retiring to our room for a nap before getting ready for dinner. I say a nap, it was actually a couple of hours, as we were really tired after our long walk back.
Waking refreshed we showered and changed and made our way down to the restaurant for another delicious dinner and then enjoyed the entertainment in one of the many bars.
