The color images are of the surf break Panga Drops. We walked about 10 minutes from our casita at Hacienda Iguana up the beach to get to this spot. I took these shots before and after Kirk’s second surf session. I love the smile surfing puts on his face.

The B&W were taken at the beach club in front of the surf break Colorados, and inside our casita while lathering up with sunscreen — an extreme necessity so close to the equator. It looks a bit like Kirk is smelling my head, which he probably was. I think there was a forehead kiss in there, too. ☼
