Several pilot whales were spotted frolicking around for about three hours off the coast near Catalina Cove and BrasilitoBeach. Some fast thinkers took several fun photos of the beautiful creatures and shared them with friends.
Turtles are still arriving on FlamingoBeach, albeit in fewer numbers. This time of year is a bit late for them to lay eggs, but it’s encouraging to know they are still returning.
In Surfside, the organic market was open for business recently at Maxine’s restaurant and bar. Great looking fruits, veggies and free-range eggs were available at one table, and homemade breads by Cecile were offered at another. Organic meats from Quinta Hojancha and fresh homemade chili sauces, chilis and other goodies were also available.
Huacas has a new office supply store called Markers, located in the commercial center. In Flamingo, Banco de Costa Rica is remodeling a new location at the López commercial center, and should be moving in soon.
