On Saturday morning The Playa Hermosa Association celebrated their annual Dia del Arbol, planting trees and shrubs at the beach.
Armed with shovels and a pickaxe, DH, YS and I decided to don our 'community-spirit hats' and went along to join in the fun and do some digging. Well to be honest, DH did most of the work, while YS and I watched him!
Quite a little crowd turned out to assist Heather and the Association, both Tico's and Gringo's. The local priest was invited to bless all those attending with Holy Water.

We were even lucky enough to have some rain on Sunday, saving us the task of watering the new flora.
