I head over to Frijoles Loco to pay for my surf lesson, then I head back down the road to Casa Cameleon. I stop off for my daily breakfast and basic Spanish with Maria.
Today I head over to Tamarindo to go to the bank and market. You have to cross the river that feeds into the ocean by ferry because of the crocodiles and current
I meet a girl from Norway on the way to the bank. I get to the bank, access my cash, then have a smoothie at a local stand. It is delicious. I spend some time riding around just to see all the action since Playa Grande is so quiet. I never make my way to the grocery store, but manage to stop off at Witch's Rock for the view and my favorite local beer.
I catch the boat back over and ride my bike through the trail which leads back home. Later I meet Mary out for some more surfing. Today, a local guy, Heinz has been generous enough to loan me a board. It turns out to be the best one I've used so far and I get up on at least a few waves. It is unbelievably beautiful watching the sunset while sitting in the middle of the ocean on a surfboard. Truly a peaceful way to end the day and everyone seems to do it here.
Tonight, my dinner consists of some cashews, a banana and some pear juice. Not quite a feast.
Later that evening, I head over to Bula Bula to gather for a the evening with the three amigos and Michelle from Canada and also a couple who has just arrived from New Jersey. Once again, I feel like the locals are now among my friends.
