Costa del Sol

We traveled about 2 hours east to go to Costa del Sol, a beautiful south facing beach. All the beaches in this area are private – either homes or hotels – so we paid $20 per person to spend the day at the Pacific Paradise Hotel. It was twenty dollars well spent as it included soft drinks, a lunch from a well rounded menu and a semi-private patio right on the sand complete with hammocks. The sand was awesome dark grains on the bottom with gold-flaked, yellow sand on top. And like the water at the other beach, it was very warm and pleasant to be in. There was a strong rip-tide at the time, so the lifeguard wouldn’t let us go too far out, but it was fun none-the-less.

Today was a trip back to San Salvador for more shopping and then a trip to more Mayan ruins at San Andreas. Unfortunately the batteries we bought for the camera were crap, so we didn’t get as many as we had hoped.

Tomorrow is our last day here…sigh… so it will be a day of packing and trying to figure out how to get all our treasures safely stored in our bags. Then it’s a birthday celebration at Mauricio and Estella’s restaurant for yours truly. We get to wake up at 4 am on Sunday for the plane ride home. Yahoo!

I’ll write more on the plane. I promise.

About the author

James James is a five time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a Telerik Insider, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.

James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.

And as usual, the comments, suggestions, writings and rants are my own, and really shouldn't reflect the opinions of my employer. That is, unless it really does.
