Flamingo/Potrero News

November 25, 2010

Baby showers were held for Heather Allenby at the home of Julia Berry in Flamingo Nov. 13, and for Sarah Haun at Nogui’s restaurant in Tamarindo Nov. 7. Congratulations to the mothers-to-be!

The Leatherbacks played Friday night at Marie’s Restaurant, with dinner and drink specials accompanying the music. Many area restaurants are now reopening for high season, so go out and sample some of the great food offered by our local establishments.

A new eatery, El Coconut, has opened in Surfside, across the street from the Bahía del Sol, for now on a part-time basis from Friday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to sunset. From what I hear, the food is delicious and the service is great.

A beach barbecue dinner fundraiser is being planned to benefit the children of Potrero, Huacas and Tempate with all the books they need to go to school next year. The dinner will be held Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. at Hotel Bahía del Sol. Please confirm before Nov. 30 by e-mailing guestservice@bahia delsolhotel.com or calling Ericka Villalobos at 2654-4671 or 8321-2727.

Many baby turtle tracks leading from nest to ocean have been seen on Playa Flamingo recently. Two baby olive ridleys also were spotted making their way to sea, struggling against the sand and turbulent waves. Let’s hope they are allowed to survive in the ocean so they may one day return to nest themselves.
