Johannes Dankers Park in Jacó.

Johannes Dankers Park in Jacó.


Yesterday, I went to Johannes Dankers Park in Jacó for this. I arrived well ahead of time which was not at all typical for me. Except I went to the wrong place at the wrong time which was very typical for me.

Of course, it wasn’t a total waste. I actually had never seen the kid’s section of the park. And I was totally enjoying the art on the walls. And I’d like to say that while this seems like just scribbly-scrawlings (and some that definitely aren’t scribbly scrawlings) from kids that have absolutely no relevance to your life, take a look. Look at the happiness within. These kids got to paint freely on the walls and this is what they did.

It’s a pretty nice little playground. So if you have small kids and in you’re in Jacó, there’s always this.

Then I decided to photograph some of the flora in the park. Really, just a beautifully maintained park.

As I was leaving, I saw this famished and tired looking pooch. So sad. There’s a good local organization, McKee Jacó, that helps strays so I sent them a photo and they’re already on the case! Woohoo!

Tired and hungry

And that was my day. Not really a waste of time at all in retrospect. 🙂
