BC: Pura Vida!

FC: Costa Rica 2011

1: The Farrells in Costa Rica

2: On the road to Puerto Viejo with Jorge

3: Stocking up on local food required all our Spanish - and sometimes more | narrow, bumpy roads . .

4: Imperial, the Costa Rican Beer | Planting "cebollos" - one of many additions to our Spanish vocabulary | Lots of "Soda..." (fill in your name)

5: Eat American or local? Local, of course. | Beautiful vistas

6: Irazu Volcano | Up and down many ridges... back and forth through many switchbacks

10: And finally- Banana Azul... | Mint vodka lemonade | CR coconuts - rum, coconut liqueur, coconut milk | Mai-tais

11: ..our home for the week | Our new best friend, Franklin | and the old standby - Imperial

12: A Day on the Water | "Come on, fishy, fishy."

14: Then the long walk home

15: with our dinner

16: 101 Ways to Fix Fish and Veggies | The chefs did a great job!

17: An Irish Toast to Grandpa Farrell's 92nd Birthday!

18: Many Walks into Town | Friendly locals

19: Little shops | Colors everywhere

20: Diving into Local Food | Our supermercado

21: ...with no worries about treatment for health emergencies | Street Food? No problem... | Explore

22: Our Next Adventure - A "Canopy Tour"... | Purely for educational purposes, of course

23: Some of us were definitely more relaxed than others! | Important instructions - Are you getting all this?

24: Lots of hills and steps to climb | Do not start spinning!

25: ...and then - zinnnnnnnng! | Do not brake too soon - OR too late.

26: But we all lived to tell the tale... | 17 times

27: ...and were smiling.

28: On our way to another adventure -

29: A boat ride into Panamanian waters | There it is!

30: Some time for scuba and free diving . . .

33: And then some beach time

35: Beautiful!

36: Whitewater Rafting - | First, some practice | "Paddle! Paddle! Paddle!"

37: Fun for all... along with terrifying for some | "Left,back! Right, forward!" | The most important - "Get down!!!"

38: Occasionally ''cowering on the bottom''

40: WE were good - 2 360s in one rapids.

41: We were underwater!

42: A great shore lunch...

43: ...and some relaxing times on the river

45: But we made it!

46: A Day at the Rescue Center

49: Will he fit in my carry-on?

50: That still left time for

51: relaxing on the beach...

54: Then there was the body-surfing- slamming- pounding -

55: aka - full-body black volcanic sand exfoliation.

56: Banana Azul - great places to relax

57: New Friends

59: No windows, no doors...

60: ...but so much to see and do

61: "Para nosotros? Perfecto!!" | Banana Azul & Puerto Viejo -

62: One more road trip together as we head back to San Jose - kids are going home,

63: and Mom and Dad are on the road to Mount Arenal.

64: We spent much of the next 4 days relaxing and watching the clouds on the top, as they teased us by lowering and raising...

65: ...but never quite enough to see the top of the volcano. | Lake Arenal

66: We did lots of hill climbing to explore and to eat. | No mountain visible today

67: The view from the dining room

68: A great memory...

69: ...but it's time for the trip back to San Jose | With steep roads, dropoffs, fog and rain, the ride was even scarier than usual.

70: So many interesting sights and good pictures -
