On To the Casa Orquideas
Sorry to have left this story in mid ocean, but an intervening trip to Carolina has kept me away from the old blog. And I need to get crackin so as to get the rest done before we head off to Arizona.
So here we are on January 10th dropping anchor at the House of Orchids, a garden paradise overseen by an American couple who came thirty years ago and never left. They raised a family on this little bay and there is no access other than by boat. The nearest town, where they shop once a week, is thirty minutes by sea. They grow orchids and also have trails where you can see hundreds of other jungle plants and flowers.
