It’s been a wonderful first two weeks for Katie and I here at our new Casa in Cananza Costa Rica.
We are settling into the house, adjusting to the tropical weather and experiencing the culture of the Osa Peninsula as our days are filled with exploring, Mt. bike cycling trips, hikes, inshore fishing and home improvement projects. Our day typically begins early (around 4:00 AM), having coffee on our outdoor patio listening to the rainforest come alive. The sequence is virtually the same every morning with the noise of the insects winding down from their evening serenade and the roosters announcing to the other creatures that the sun is about to rise over the Gulf. This is followed by the deep grunts of the howler monkeys, the singing and fly-by activity of multiple birds and finally the colorful scarlet Macaws cruising above the tree tops and announcing their arrival with their amplified screeches.
The photography opportunities have been amazing with numerous encounters with two different species of Toucans, all 4 local monkeys, drone shots of the Gulf and close ups of our new neighbor (Mr. Giant Iguana – about 5 Ft. long).
The fishing with Cory Craig has been exceptional (as usual) and with our guests (the Bradley’s and the Larson’s from Bozeman). We’ve managed to catch Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Snapper, Rooster fish, and a variety of Jacks. The first day out on December 2nd was in fact the best off shore day that I’ve ever had with multiple monster Yellowfin tuna and dorado that were landed on bait, topwater poppers and flies.
I will forward a variety of photos in three separate e-mails. The first (this one) with scenic shots, the second with the local animals and a third that features the fishing.
More to follow as the adventure is really just beginning.
