Yesterday we went to the opening party at the Secret Garden, a local gallery right on the oceanfront.  As suggested by its name, the gallery also has the most amazing and lush garden, with lots of nooks and crannies and beautiful plants and outdoor art.  The indoor art is also very cool, and features local artists.

At the opening, we finally got to meet Luis Ortiz, who posted the very first comment on our blog!  Luis is very knowlegable about the area and local plants and is a keen gardener.  We very gratefully accepted his gift of seven (7!) sprouting coconuts!  We will do our best to keep them alive for landscaping once our construction work is done!
