Costa Rica Day 5 Hanging at the hood.
Today we decided to do nada and hang out at the house all day, after all we did pay for this view so we ought to get some use of it. We did start the day with our morning jog on the beach, along with several other ex patriots, most of em much older than us. They are all very friendly and say hi every day. I realized we had not posted many pics from our beach, so Tra brought the camera and got a few, and some of our house as well. It was a very relaxing day, but I can only sit out in the sun for about 15 minutes before I start to boil, then I have to hit the pool . I think we spend more time in the pool than out of it.
We saw lots of critters this morning, a couple iguanas at the top of tree fighting, a cool lizard that was black and white with spots, a squirrel or monkey, not sure which, jumping from tree to tree, and a huge fish like creature, possibly a marlin thrashing the water right in front of our house. I was ready to get out my Russian River fly and see if I could get em to “bite”.
For dinner we went to a highly recommended restaurant right next door, about 200 feet from our house, Mar Y Sol, sea and sun. It is french style, usually not my thing, but this restaurant was pretty amazing, and I am sure we will return. The prices were decent, atmosphere great, food awesome, view fantastic, what’s not to like.
All in all a very relaxing day, what did we learn?
1. It is very painful when your head finally peels.
2. You don’t always have to go far to find great food.
3. Black do-rags absorb the heat.
4. Iguanas climb trees, all the way to the top!
5. French food can be pretty great.
