My husband and I went to Costa Rica over the last week. Here are a few pictures to bring you with us! Click to enlarge. Click again for full size.
The view from our terrace
Fabulous breakfast joint
Dinner show on the beach
Stunning fire dancers
Light in darkness
A blur of movement
This was just amazing
The water is shallow forever
Surveying the trees
Too small to capture properly with the camera, this guy was bright!
All the dogs in Tamarindo are happy and relaxed
We went to a wildlife sanctuary/zoo where they rehab/release animals they can and keep the ones they cannot
I love this bird!
I wish our squirrels were this pretty!
He is in the zoo because he was trained as a pickpocket.
Whoooo are yoooo?
I am offended. Offended, I tell you.
Go out to a fancy restaurant and order fish, get an extra dinner guest
We took an estuary tour
The birds hanging in the estuary were stunning
On the move
Baby crocs abounded
Howler monkeys live everywhere.
This fellow hung out by our balcony every afternoon.
King of the Tree, overseeing his domain
Lunch at Lola’s, with Lolita
Time for breakfast….bait’s awaitin’
I have never seen so many hermit crabs. Ever.
This was not expecting when I ordered snapper
Sometimes, your dinner wants to eat you.
Costa Rican Traffic Jam
We even saw a giant Green Pacific Sea Turtle laying her eggs. They’re protected and you can’t startle them while they’re figuring out where to nest, cleaning the space, or digging the hole, but once a female begins to lay, she goes into a trance. While she’s laying, she is oblivious and you can close in and get some video. Which, of course, I did. The infrared is what we had on and you can see her shell on the left side where that is. Once she started laying, the guides dropped in a white light that we could use to get the egg part.
