    It is currently 7:37 am in the morning.

    Today, we leave our Casa Cielo in Sardinal behind and head on to our next destination in Jaco, Costa Rica.

    We've really enjoyed our experiences here. It's been quite a bit of fun and we've met some amazing people. Now, it is time to pack up and move 'em out so to speak.

    Thought I would take some goodbye pictures of this lovely cottage in the woods. I also took some pictures of the fish tank - from outside and inside. I ...

    Veronica and Stuart (who is Veronica's son) took us for a little hike down to the local swimming hole. Wow!!! The place is amazing. It was so much fun swimming around, taking pictures and swinging on the rope.

    We swam for a bit and then headed back to the cottage.

    I loved it so much at the ranch that I did not want to leave. When Joanne said she did not feel that great, I suggested that she go back to the cottage and rest so I could stay at the cottage. Joanne was ...

    The drive to the Ranch is quite the roller coaster ride... You pretty well have to have nerves of steel to drive on these roads. lol Thank ...

    92-93: Two very long days and my official guide

    A travel blog entry by blondesontour on May 07, 2013

    ... tomorrow, I'm meant to be doing my swims for my dive master too so I'll be able to tick something off tomorrow! 93: Back in the pool today for Taylor's IDC and for me, Zack and Julian to finish off some DMT stuff. I'm only going to be doing 3 or 4 skills as I've done the rest and I just need to get a 5 in something and also re-do my deep water entry skill as if you may remember I cleverly did not inflate my BCD on the previous attempt! Everything went fairly well, I ended ...
