The week in Costa Rica continues to be wonderfully relaxing and immense fun. The only problem is that I am not making much progress with my remaining unachieved goals. However, I do manage to keep revisiting some of the other goals that I have achieved previously.
We went horse riding again, a more gentle ride in hotter conditions, with some spectacular views over the countryside and coastline. I felt much more confident, despite being on a different horse, which was a little more stubborn than my previous mount.
The next day we all went rafting on the Naranjo River with H2O Rafting. The last time I went rafting was in Colorado, where I achieved goal #56. On that occasion the river had been low, and the rafting a bit technical, but here the river was flowing well, and we bounced through some spectacular rapids.
I took my camera in it’s waterproof case, but most of the time the river was too exciting to be able to get it out, so afterwards Jelene bought the official photographer’s disc of photos, and those shown below are all credited to H20 Rafting.
Yesterday we took one of the little runabout speed boats owned by John’s marina development out for a run along the coastline just before sunset. On the return we pulled up a good distance offshore, and dived in to the wonderfully warm ocean, and floated lazily around as the orange sun sank below the horizon.
In between activities we have longed around on the condo balcony watching sloths, monkeys and toucans in the jungle below us, sipping coffee, smoothies, or beer, depending on the time of the day.
There is more horse riding planned for this morning – I am just hoping that my saddle sores don’t hurt too much today!!
