The following are just some random, fun, crazy pictures from Costa Rica. Just to give you a flavor!
Where else could you go and see monkeys, sloths, dogs and children all on one sign!
Water and electricity, this is a typical shower head in most hotels in Costa Rica. I have been zapped!
A wild, yet good looking bunch. My good friend Gladys has generously sent me many of her excellent photographs to add to my website. She is a MUCH better photographer than I.
A pair of cattle are used to pull carts of harvested date palm fruit out to the road where it is transferred to a container and picked up by a truck. I have been told these cattle are raised from birth as a pair. If something happens and one dies, the other is euthanized as it can never work with a new partner.
This restaurant was built around an old American bomber after the Iran Contra scandal. The kitchen and bar are inside, the deck (see picture below) is around the plane.
The Costa Rican government is making a strong effort to replace old bridges. Clearly this holds up traffic when only one direction can go at a time. Also, do not use dogs as brakes (ha ha)
Can you see me? I am behind the butterflies!
This is a turtle egg harvest. The eggs for sea turtles are heavily poached. This group harvests them, waits for them to hatch, and release the babies back to the water. Each sign designates the date the eggs were laid, how many, and where they came from.
The ocean is usually quite serene but this day was rough and strong. The crazy ladies decided they had to go in! Glad to call them my friends, makes life interesting with friends like this.
This is in Manuel Antonio. It is amazing how everything growing has something else growing on it too.
The plant on the left was relocated from the river to near our homesite. The plant on the right was a bud when generously given to us by a neighbor.
If the roots are this big, imagine how tall the tree is. A ficus!
