Campamento Verano: La Playa

Everyday we went to the beach for about an hour and a half before lunch. Playa Santa Clara is on the Pacific Ocean and is very nice. In fact, it's starting to become a Resort town again. Back in the days of the Canal Zone it was a popular place for Zonians to vacation. Las Veraneras is a little place with cabins and a restaurant on one end of the beach, and Las Sirenas is on the other end. Some big houses are starting to show up in the neighborhood, too. The Baptists have a camp in Santa Clara, as do the Methodists. There is still a little fishing village next to Las Veraneras and we buy the fish for meals at camp from them. La playa is one of the best things about campamento!

Padre, it's lovely. Maybe you could arrange for us to stay there, if Huckabee is elected to the White House, and some of us have to leave.

I See You!
