Costa Rica...Amazing Trip Part II

Mike and I did the mega zip tour with Geovaney as aur private guide. We drove 1 1/2 hours to the Rincon Park at the base of the Rincon volcano.  We saw king vulture, howler monkeys, toucans, a mother sloth with her baby and tropical birds. We climbed a really high hill and zip lined down.  Then we walked back up and came down the 1000 ft concrete narrow waterside which was very fast and rough and cold.  Next we had lunch, an authentic Costa Rican lunch of meat, rice, beans, and veggies.  Then we went horseback riding to the spa where we went into the sauna, the rubbed volcanic mud all over us and soaked in three natural hot spring bathes (pools).  Ashley and Tori spent the day at the pool...Tori continued to get her swimming fix!

We Skyped Nick to hear about his game and we heard the great news that he pitched a complete game (7 innings) shutout with 14 strikeouts, 1 walk and 2 hits!!!  A great game and win 2-0!!!

We started the morning on the beach, Tori and Ashley played in the water where the fish swarmed them.  Mom and Dad hung out on the shore watching.  Mom and Ashley went to Cocoa Beach for shopping while Dad and Tori hung out at the beach for a while longer.
