I DO BELIEVE WE LEFT OFF HERE…………….
COSTA RICA and MY FRIEND THE GREETER!
WELCOME TO TORTUGUERRO!
Homes along the RIVERSIDE.
A TOWN called SAN FRANCISCO!Population about 500.
HERCULES…….MY little BUDDY.
First found in my hammock on the way to dinner upon our return he was peering INSIDE!
I name HIM HERCULES because HE hopped up 16 stairs.
The ITALIAN caught HIM from the INSIDE!
SEE no windows ONLY SCREENS!
The BEAUTY Of the morning AWAKENING began about 4 am…..
With those MONKEY’s!
This is FOR FADED VELVET!
Can you do this with YOUR TOILET PAPER?
They have made a FLOWER that sits on TOP of the ROLL.
I found it to be a stunning little DETAIL!
It can RAIN in COSTA RICA……which by the way means RICH COAST.
I would have liked to bring SOME back for my GARDEN and share with CALIFORNIA!
It only lasts for about 30 minutes if that.
Overlooking the RIVER that leads to the PACIFIC OCEAN.
TWO HAMMOCKS and TWO ROCKING CHAIRS on FRONT PORCH.
THE DOOR to our room……….reminded me of a SHIP.
Actually like SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON!
A DIVINE TREE HOUSE!
TWO LEATHER CHAIRS and a FISH!
ACCESSORIZED for A NIGHT OUT.
Told the ITALIAN he gets the TWIN BED if he mis-behaves!
There was another double bed so a FAMILY could be very happy here.
Curtains hung around each bed.
Two Powder rooms!!!!!
THE FISH AND ME!
This doggy was in the WATER……..
A BIG NO NO!
As you saw from the last POST on COSTA RICH there are CAIMAN in these WATERS!!!
THAT DARK BUNDLE.
AN UGLY LITTLE GUY.
There were TONS of BIRDS.
A JUMPING MONKEY!
Wings and NECK ELONGATED!
Can you see my YELLOW FACE?
He was VERY thoughtful as he changed positions for me!
Cruising through the CANALS.
At any moment I expected a DINOSAUR to appear!
These ROOTS were MAGNIFICENT!
How many shades of GREEN can YOU count?
I stopped at 12.
After an excursion We were always GREETED by MY FRIEND on the ground and fruit drinks on a TRAY!!!!
How many of YOU remember FANTASY ISLAND?
“The PLANE ~THE PLANE!”
Well, let me tell you the AIR STRIP was across the river from our ABODE!
THIS my ITALIAN found out about on his walk at DUSK!
This is the FLOWER COCO CHANEL uses to make CHANEL number 5!
I kept for 5 days.
It turned BLACK on the third day but still was WAFTING the ODUR.
Here WE are in the DEPTHS of the JUNGLE and PARIS is mentioned!
GOTTA LOVE THAT!
Me in my morning GARB for breakfast!
View at BREAKFAST.
Needless, to say I wasNOT ready to come back HOME!
I LOVE MY HOME and ANIMALS!
NEXT UP HOW I MET MY ITALIAN 30 plus years ago!
MY MOTHER TOLD ME TO OPEN MY EYES!
