... my daddy to thank for that.
We saw a giant iguana and tons of monkeys. The howler monkeys would howl really loud the more we screamed. Brenda and I were the only two making any noise, we would scream and giggle the whole way. Every now and then so would Jeff. The Mom of the family was scared to death of the idea of zip-lining and did really well. At one point when they started to bounce everyone she screamed "I HATE THIS!" but ...
... flames on
high. Cars and trucks zoomed by us on the narrow road, with each pass I
was sure I'd be knocked off the road by the their side mirror. With no hope of getting the chain to stay on, and both of us ready to collapse from heat stroke, I decide one of us is going to have to ride on alone to the hotel to get help. I was better suited to ride the rest of the way, but I didn't want to leave Robin on the side of the road. About that moment, we see a small store ...

So, having been moved to the remedial surfing class, I was left to try to stand on the stand up paddle board - a board, I will point out, is meant to be stood up on!! On a positive ...
... on our way out wasn't too bad and we didn't have any capsizes. Due to the presences of a couple of reefs, we needed to follow along after our guide in a zig-zag pattern in order to avoid being crushed on the rocks. Or at least that's what they told us. I think they just find it humorous to watch us going back and forth- granted there was quite a bit of that anyways. Steering a kayak is ok on it's own, but add a second person who most likely hasn't done it ...
