|Totally relaxed except for the tail.. it's anchor.|
We haven't really been doing too much lately, .. homeschooling in the mornings which still have smooth days and then not so smooth days ( I saw "Homeschooling for Dummies" in the book exchange in a store in town.. I think I'll go back for it) and then trips to town for groceries or a meal or a dip in the pool (the restaurant's). Sometimes we get the boogie boards out and sometimes it's just a body surf type afternoon swim. We have gotten to the point of naming the types of waves.. there is the "foamer", which is when the wave crashes and you get the foamy part; there is the "smacker", which is when you get the wave smack in your back (it can hurt); then there is the "floater", which is just a nice easy lull of a wave ( I like those). The other day when it was high tide and the waves seemed bigger than usual, Sean added one more to our repertoire, the "panicker".. when you see it approaching it really does instill a twinge of panic! The only option for those is to dive right through it. We did manage to get back out on the surf boards again and we all had a go, but Liam is the only one that really liked it and has the knack for it (though Sean is pretty good too..when he tries. )

There was a "trembler" yesterday and Sean thinks he might of felt it. It's a fairly common thing in Costa Rica and people chit chat about aftershocks and tremblers and it's magnitude like we in Canada talk about wind chill factor. I guess it's a normal part of growing up in Costa Rica. We had a really nice evening with our neighbours/owner's grandson and girlfriend and they said that the big earthquake that happened in September has changed the shore line here in Samara. They can now see more reef in low tide that they normally wouldn't, there is more island to the island out in the bay and the beach is bigger. Wild to think that they are witness to the changes of plate tectonics.
|Not sure if this is a young iguana or a different type of lizard|
We were able to reschedule the dolphin-snorkeling trip and hopefully we won't miss the boat this time!
