so, this morning was so nice. the guys all got up early to change the tire and get them fixed and i just had the morning and most of the afternoon just to myself.  i woke up a little later and just hung out. laid in a hammock reading for most of the morning and a little later a dog from the hostel, (ghost) and i took a nice long walk along the beach, breaking occasionally to take a dip.  the water here is like bath water, and soo clear....i really am in paradise.

when the guys got back, eventually, i was soo relaxed, but we had to leave, (the guys had to get back to work) so we packed up and started to make our way back to san jose, although along the way stopped at a beach to take one last swim and enjoy the sun just a little more.  the beach that we stopped at was just a little ways, but soo beautiful.  when we first got there there were soo many monkeys in the trees. it was the first time i had really seen them so i just hung out, watching them for a while. there were babies hanging onto their moms and some really small ones climbing by themselves. and while we were watching one of the babies fell out of the tree!!!  it was soo sad! he was so cute and small and we got some good pics but the other monkeys thought we were going to hurt him so started to through things at us!! the baby was okay but soo scared and the mom wouldn´t even come all the way to the ground to get him. they are soo terrified of the ground! so we backed off and eventually the mom found a tree that was low enough to reach the baby. 

after that adventure it was time to really enjoy the water and the beach. so we just laid out and sucked up the sun and played in the waves.  louey found a baby iguana as well in the water, and it was soo traquilo....he just picked it up out of the water and put it on his shoulder, and it just hung out there....it was wicked!!  the animals here are soo awesome!!

anyways, after a nice afternoon at the beach, we had to make our way back to san jose.  i spent the night at louey´s and the next day i decided that i wanted to go back to santa theresa, but i couldnt have just stayed there because my big backpack had been in san jose at louey´s house. so i went back to the hostel where we had met chris....backpackers costa rica, and booked a shuttle for the next day.
