Walking around Providencia, we thought the island was very cute and wanted to see more. We rented scooters and a suped-up golf cart along with Slow Flight, Delphinus, and Vidorra to explore further. Dave and I fell in love with the island. There is so much creativity and artwork that the whole island felt like a piece of art. Providencia and San Andres couldn’t more different, just like Santa Marta and Cartagena were totally different. Colombia is so diverse!
I loved the tire art. What a great way to repurpose used tires! The beaches were beautiful and picturesque and the beach bars were great fun. The people were friendly and we just generally had a great time. And every lizard on the island came out to have their pictures taken, which I did in honor of George on Wild Cat. You’re welcome, George!
We drive fairly fast and most of my photos are taken at various speeds up to 50 mph. Sometimes I miss things. So I asked to return the next day to get a few more shots. Here is a video showing how fast we go while I am clicking away. Easy to miss things, right?
Sometimes we get silly, but the concrete and tile statues didn’t seem to appreciate our humor.
Except maybe Paul’s new sweetheart.
And I’ll end the tour with a funny sign. Literally translated I get: Watch out! They have the way. Meaning, I suppose, right of way. There wasn’t any kiteboarding here, nor any diving, so our time was limited. But we are still very glad we stopped here. Next up, Jayne from Delphinus and I go for a nature walk looking for wildlife.
