Day 6 and 7 of our Costa Rica Adventure were pretty subdued. We had lots of relaxing down-time, so we spent some time just roaming around, taking in the sites and LOTS of time in the water. Here are some pics of both days. . .
Day 6 started out relaxing and wandering around Pete's Place. It was a short hike down the hill to the pool, but well worth the trek.
Sasha liked to join us. . .
This was the cat. . . never did catch his name, but he was pretty friendly.
Sasha liked to go wading in the pool. . .
Dave had to get his morning cappuccino fix at Emilio's Café. . .
We decided to ride the bus in to Quepos for some shopping. These were the shoes that were hanging on the electrical wire at the bus stop. . .
Interesting stop sign in Quepos. . .
Had to stop for donuts at a local bakery. . . just because it was there and smelled great!
Then, back down to Manuel Antonio for some coconut juice. . .
Just too funny NOT to take a picture. Dave was NOT amused. . . but the rest of us were. . .
Relaxing night at the house with Sasha and a movie. . .
Day 7 started much the same as day 6. . . a walk to the pool. . .
Then off for a catamaran cruise and snorkeling. . .
The water was really rough. So rough, they almost cancelled the tour. . . Kind of wish they had, but it was another new experience. . .
The motion sickness had not yet set in, so it was still all smiles. . .
Starting to feel a little queasy. . .
Aaaaannnnddd, there it is. . .
Dave and Trevor were good to go. Kaylee and me. . . not so much. . .
The surf was too rough, so no snorkeling today, but they did let us get out in the water. . . just pretty far from shore so we wouldn't get beaten up by the surf. . .
Once the boat stopped, we all started feeling better. Kaylee was a trouper and conquered her fear of the open ocean. . . with the help of a personal floatation device. . .
On the boat ride home, one of the crew showed Trevor how to tie a few knots. . .
So, Trevor thought he would give it a try on his own. . .
Viola! Papa Roger would be so proud!!!
Then it was back in the water at Pete's Place for some more fun!
So, of course, it became a cannon ball competition. . .
Love that it looks like he's levitating!
And then we thought we'd work on diving. . .
Ummm. . . yeah, that's gonna need some more work. . .
Dinner at Aqua Azul. . .
My dinner was Macadamia Nut crusted Mahi Mahi. . . Delish!
Dave had the seafood linguine. . .
Kaylee was route 3'd out by this time and opted for the chicken quesadilla. . .
Same with Trevor. . . he got the beef tacos. . .
And we all enjoyed the sunset. . .
Sad that we have to leave Pete's Place tomorrow. . .
BUT: we still have one more day in Costa Rica!
