This will be the third attempt at this posting. First one I deleted by mistake, second one we had a power surge and everything crashed.

Saturday was a great day. We learned some new Costa Rican expression: Toda Tuanis...all is good and chil-axing. Easy to figure that one out.
We hiked to the La Paz waterfalls. A beautiful site watching water cascade down the falls into a pool/stream in the middle of a rain forest. On the hike we saw hummingbirds that are at least twice the size of the ones we see in Colorado. One in particular was really different, black with purple, a three inch beak and white tail feathers. After the hike to the falls we returned to our room and spent some time chil-axing.

Sunday we visited the Poaz Volcano. It rained all the way to the volcano, rained as we hiked to the summit, rained as we peered over the edge, rained as we hiked down and continued to rain all day. The share our vision of the volcano, image this...you are standing in the middle of a dark gray cloud, rain is pelting you, the wind is blowing the hood of your jacket off your head and you are soaked to the bone. The only thing dry is my camera because it has a better rain cover than we do. Now you have seen as much of the volcano as we have. Our guide said that this is the transition season in the mountains from wet to dry season. We experienced the wet season through and through.

We returned to hotel, soaked in the hot hot tub, drank a few beers a few shots of Patron, room service dinner, and futbol. Toda Tuanis!

Today we meet the North Carolina crew for fishing and fun in Quespos. Adios amigos.
