Punta Lava

Posted on Updated on


Last night Danny and I went to dinner at Punta Lava restaurant,  which is right on the beach at Red Frog.  As we were walking out the marina, one of our neighbors threw us their car keys and told us to have fun.  Danny drove that thing like he does his BMW on the California Freeways.  It was so fun making our way through he dirt roads in the jungle.


We noticed Rafael, the security guard, walking home from work, so we had him hop on the back.


Punta Lava is a great little restaurant.  Danny had Seafood linguini, which was filled with calamari, shrimp and scallops. It was delicious.  I had a shrimp Caesar salad served in a tortilla bowl.  It was also delicious. They brought us freshly made watermelon and pineapple juice which was so refreshing.

The view of Red Frog Beach from where we sat was beautiful.


Hardly another soul was in sight and bird song filled the evening air.  Another beautiful day in Paradise!


P.S.  I failed to mention that when Danny and I were checking engines yesterday morning before our maiden voyage, he suddenly exclaimed, ‘Oh crap.’  When I asked what the matter was, he showed me a spring and said he’d just broken an important part of the engine.  He said the boat would not run without it, he didn’t know here it went and we’re pretty much screwed.  I tried to look around to help him find where it goes, but also thought it odd that he react that way, because Danny can fix anything and always keeps his cool in matters like this.  He then got a big grin on his face and said, ‘April Fools!’

If I could have, I would have thrown him overboard. What a tease 🙂

    I LOVE your blog!! Dad keeps saying, “I’m so jealous of them, they’re living their dream!” That was a really good April Fool’s joke, Dan. Keep sending the blogs, I check the computer first thing in the morning, afternoon, and before I go to bed!

      Thank you Mom. We love interacting with you on it. Danny is such a tease, but I reminded him that paybacks are a buggar lol. I will keep blogging, I love doing it. We are headed in to Bocas Town for some groceries so I’ll take pictures and blog about that later.
