Reflecting on our days in Bocos del Toro, Panama

The end of our vacation was spent relaxing a few days with a friend who retired, escaped the rat race in the USA, and now lives near Bocas del Toro, Panama.  I am not sure if he & his wife got their inspiration from a Jimmy Buffett song or not but the lyrics of “The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful” keeps playing through my head as I reflect on my days spent in this delightful little community… just substitute “Atlanta” for “New York” and “Ken & Vonne” for “Billy Clyde”.

“He’s going back to New York pack it up and let everyone know.  It was something that he should have done such a long time ago. Still time to start a new life in the palm trees.  Billy Clyde wasn’t insane.  And it doesn’t work out there’ll never be any doubt that the pleasure was worth all the pain”
