So as the weeks go on, day to day things are pretty much the same so here's a few little bits of things that have been going on. Just before Vicki and Katie left they managed to hire some body boards and as you hire them for the day they said I could have a go. Considering I had never tried it they gave me some tips. It was probably the most fun I've had in the sea and it felt like I was flying! It took me a few tries to get the hang of it ...

We are learning the essential Spanish phrases, but my favorite is “Pura Vida”, pronounced POOrah VEEdah, with a little roll of the “r”.

they won’t have the restaurant open and I will need to talk ...
... Alas, the towns around here are few and far between, so there’s no guarantee there’ll be anything to find. We shall see.
Update: We've driven into Playa del Coco to find internet. On the way, we saw what we think was a kinkajou carrying its baby out of the roadway. We're now relaxing in a very pleasant coffee bar and art studio, enjoying some delicious drinks while we take care of a few necessary emails and update the blog.
