Just below the RV Park and toward town is one of the Cemetery’s that service La Penita residents. At the end of Cemetery road it dead ends right at the beach. (Poor choice of words, I know.) There is just enough room to park one car, and if you get the spot, that little section of beach will be yours for the afternoon.
Kathleen and I were there today. There were two young boys in their teens spearing fish and gathering clams near the rocks to our right. At one point a group of four younger boys came by as they were playing along the beach. No doubt their homes were not to far away. Even though it was about 3:00 in the afternoon, one of the young boys had to try his English on us and said “good morning”. That got Kathleen going with an English lesson and the young boys in turn gave us a Spanish lesson. We had fun with them as they practiced their English and we our Spanish. They also enjoyed posing for pictures and even took one of us. The scene reminded us that boys are boys, fun is fun, and it doesn’t matter if it is the U.S., Canada, or Mexico.
