It has been a great past two weeks for Katie and I here on the Osa Peninsula just outside of Puerto Jimenez. This is photo update #4.
We’ve been out fishing with Cory Craig (again), out on our boat and surf casting from the beach and have had success with a variety of new species (the official variety-species count is up to 32). The best fish was a Conger Eel that was not only impressive looking but one of the single best fish we’ve ever eaten. We have also completed a variety of home improvement projects, the most labor intensive being painting the interior of the Grand Room.
Cycling on our mountain bikes every other day has allowed us to explore new areas within a 20 mile radius of our home. Most impressive are some of the beaches and rivers that line the interior perimeter of the peninsula, all the way to the back of the Gulf. Drone boy has been observed – flying around the beaches at low tide to capture some unique photos of the surf and the incredible “aqua marine” color of the water.
We’ve met several new neighbors (from the States and several from Canada) who have been extremely helpful in providing advice as to how to avoid the pitfalls that are ever present when navigating the Culture of a foreign country (just sayin).
We are about to journey back to the States “for a dose of Winter” (Katie tomorrow and me on January 6th). Then it’s back again for several 4-6 week intervals until the end of May. More photos to follow at the end of next week and have a safe and happy New Year’s celebration.
