Janu-Rica: Part 2


Day 10

Dominicalito beach. 


Day 11

Toucans like to feed and groom each other. 


Day 12

Certain Dark Things from my favorite author: Silvia Moreno Garcia.


Day 13


Day 14

Our favorite dive bar: Jolly Rodger. We always get the Suyo pizza.



Day 15

A nest of seashells.


Day 16

The soundtrack is on repeat, with cicadas and toucans chirping constantly in the hills. Sporadically, howler monkeys gargle like a mouthwash commercial, and oropendolas emit a zippy-giggling sound, as they dip on tree branches in a gymnastic mating display. Blue Morpho butterflies float through the air, and it isn't hard to imagine that you are staring in a James Cameron sequel to Avatar. 

Waves crash on the shore.

We crash at our favorite jungle cabana.

Your description of the sounds that you are listening to is making me envious of your surroundings.

Sharon - we have begun planning a family vacation to Grand Cayman in May. Your pictures make me yearn for the beach! (And maybe some rum.) Lovely!

What a beautiful place, I'd love to take a vacation there! I didn't know what a Oropendolas is so I looked it up, they are beautiful birds!

Such a colorful place, and a gorgeous sunset. In the first photo, the birds appear to be waiting for a handout!

So wonderful, how I would love to crash there! Gotta go look up oropendolas --I'm sure that will just give me another good reason to hope we get to visit Costa Rica someday.
