Our final few days in Playa Grande where filled with surfing, swimming, homework, and relaxing. I managed to get in 2 surf sessions a day (wonderful surf all week) while still getting in a full day's work. It is amazing how we can be so far from home, but can still be in touch with work as if at home in Maine. Conference calls with teammates, customers, etc.
Sawyer and Hunter also did a lot of surfing this week. They also spend a lot of time in the pool and have "school" everyday during the height of the heat/sun. The boys have become quite good at ping-pong. Everyone has time to read and relax. Pace of life is slow in Playa Grande.
The big event for the week was our help with the endangered leatherback turtle
We met some wonderful people at Playa Grande Inn. Within a few days we felt like regulars, playing music, playing poker and partying at an impromptu concert featuring a popular punk bank (NOFX).
Hanging out in the surf "line-up", laughing about antics from the night before - felt very home-like.
We will come back to Playa Grande again some day for sure!
