That's how it is for us North Americans down here in Central America. We still "hurry" and then, we wait. I am excited about having a guest to show "my secret paradise" but Cindy arrived in Costa Rica rolling out of the terminal in a wheelchair. She had a little accident with a quartz rock before leaving on her trip and ended up having eight stitches on her ankle and a nasty bruise.
Most of our exploring has been by car since her arrival...
(Gracías A Díos por mí carro!!)
We've been to several beaches and she was surprised to see the very dark sand. It wasn't what I expected either when I arrived (coming from "sugar sand land") but I soon learned, Costa Rica has a variety of beaches within a close proximity.
We drove a little south yesterday (my second favorite spot) where there are shells instead of rocks and the beach is shallow for a long way out. No wading, no water, and not much walking for her.
Manuel Antonio National Park and the monkeys will have to wait until Cindy is back solid on both feet.
The weather?, it's been cool because it's been rainy but THAT has been nice!
After all, "It IS a rain forest."
