Mar 8, 2013 - To much sun!
Yes the last two days I have been having out at the pool for 2 hours a day ! I thought I was ok keeping my bandana wet and swimming every 10 min to keep cool. But I woke up and soon I I stood in the sun I new I had to keep out if it today. So we tripped around town and hung out under the covers at the beach and I feel better tonight.

Mar 7, 2013 - Sun beer and birds.
Usual day of over 32 and lots of sun. Last night we listened to a live guitar on the beach and three fire dancers showed up and put in a show to his music. Lots of Roxs favorite bid the Parakeet. They make a ton of noise and fly around crazy, one way , then back again for no particular reason. Monkeys are seen every day as the mangos are now ripe. Fishing is real good here our friend Ken got a 29# snook right off the beach . Then on the way home a local had a large grouper. Maybe 50 plus pounds. He had it on a cart and was pushing it for...Jump to full entry

Got up this morning and we walked the North side of Samara beach at low tide. Saw lots of Pelicans diving for fish and standing around on the reef when full.

Jun 2, 2012 - Bali
"Daddy, there's a snake in the bathroom!" I'll come back to that. But first I have to let you know I am typing this one handed, with my thumb. My five year old computer crashed the second day we got here to Bali. So my iPhone has become my connection to the bigger world. I'll email this over to Jacye, as she's decided to be called here, and she'll post it to the travel blog from her trusty iPad. After spending a delightful month in Honolulu......thank you all......we flew across the date line and equator to the beautiful island of...Jump to full entry

Mar 27, 2012 - Still in Costa Rica........2 days and counting
Life in Costa Rica Waking up with nothing to do and only getting half of it done is our new saying ....that's why in the 3 months we've been down here I am just now finding the time to write this blog. January 1 we arrived in Playa Grande and our lives came to an instant halt compared to the almost constant movement of our first 6 months of travel through Europe and South Africa. It was intentional to pick one place and just stay there because traveling can get exhausting and expensive. We picked someplace warm and thought that we would be...Jump to full entry
Mar 24, 2012 - From one paradise to another-Playa Grande, Costa Rica
Aloha from Costa Rica Hi all, this finds us in Costa Rica where we have been for almost three months. It has been a long time since we posted anything on our trip blog. I was relying on Jackye, but she’s been posting stuff on Facebook. I’ve been meaning to write something up, but have been way too busy doing nothing. Actually I’ve been awfully busy while doing nothing. After moving every other day as we traveled through Europe and South Africa, we decided that we needed to find a place that is warm and we can stay put. We found that place,...Jump to full entry
Mar 1, 2012 - Landed In Playa Hermosa.
After a seven hour trip along the coat visiting all the little towns and beaches, we arrived in Playa Hermosa. Staying with Kathy and Leggo in a clean little apartment. We just landed and were a bit late in Hermosa due to a fan belt starting to fall off the taxi, so we grabbed showers and hit the town of Playa Coco with Kathy and Leggo. Great little town and we partied at a beach bar with real good live music. Off to check out Playa Coco this afternoon , they maybe dinner there tonight. Works out good as Leggo has rented a car. Pics and...Jump to full entry
