Panama - Toboga Island,
February 2007
 


A very small island and you have to take a ferry to get to it. There are about 900 inhabitants. It is a very laid back island so if you are planning on a visit, the ferry leaves around 9:30 in the morning and does not come back to pick you up until 4:30. You don’t have to take a lunch, there are a few places you can eat and also pick up water. We found a wonderful little place to eat that only had about 5 or 6 tables. The beach is really nice to walk and as you can tell it gets very hot here…you must put on sunscreen very often! I saw this huge grasshopper – it must have been about 6” long. Lots of flowers to look at – you should have smelled that Gardenia! Papaya and bananas everywhere…hibiscus, bougainvillea, flame of the forest in flower. Then walking down one of the roads we ran across what was left of a building that Paul Gauguin stayed in while he was here in Panama…he worked on the canal I hear for about two weeks before he got sick and had to go home. A wonderful laid back day with our friends from Alberta, then we took our little ferry back home…
