Day 4 - Thursday

I love the early morning and was up at 5:30 for a sunrise hike around the grounds... I let Robin sleep in until 6:30am...ha! After breakfast, we purchased our tkts to the hanging bridges and secured a ride in the hotel golf cart to the park. By 8am with big girl camera at the ready we started our 2 hr trek in search of the dozens of monkeys present in the area the day before.

2 hrs and 12 bridges later, we didn't see a ...

Day 77: Today I was meant to be in the shop again but I ended up doing a DSD with Tom in the pool instead. The couple who were doing it were really nice although the woman was a little bit nervous. They were actually pretty good though, usually DSD's are kind of like Bambi on ice, but underwater, these guys however seemed to take to it pretty well. This counts towards my course so Tom briefed me afterwards. He said I did good but that I talk too much, colour me surprised. I've always ...
