The seaplane is back! Remember back in July when the large seaplane caused a commotion as it landed in the back lagoon? Well pilot Robert and businessman Italo are back on the island with a similar seaplane. The air/water craft stopped at the Lagoon Side Texaco Gas Station once again to fill up on gas which takes up about 500 gallons of diesel and brings their bill to almost $6,000Bze! The flight crew flew in from the United States and is on the way to Peru, South America. They plan to say in San Pedro for the night and leave early tomorrow morning.

We got invited to Sueño del Mar last night for a lovely evening to wine and dine under the palapa. The occasion was to introduce Chef Mr. Marwan Haddad as head of the restaurant at Sueño del Mar.
