THe glory of a story
Thursday morning the white faced monkeys were on the beach. Amazing little fellows. Looking at their faces they are so close to human, it's uncanny!
After spending time watching them, we went to head back up with Jim and Betty who had joined us, and came across Ramey...who was selling outings and adventures. His prices were definitely better than some of the others in the hotel, but his follow through on services was certainly not. We purchased his tour, and had a great tour CoaCoa Beach, which was really neat. Lots of interesting things for purchase, vendors that could be negotiated with, and our last stop...a bar that had swings set up all along the outside edge looking out at the street. That I enjoyed!
Unfortunately, our trip was to include being taking from there to a sunset cruise, with the chance to snorkel etc. That's where something went wrong, as the same little boat picked us up and seemed to know nothing about that. Most of our group was pretty ticked off about it. I am still choosing to believe it was miscommunication, but who knows. Ramey may come through yet....if so I'll let you know. If not, I'd recommend you steer clear of him!
Yesterday we had chartered a boat to go out deep sea fishing. I had no interest in the fishing, but did want to see what else might be out there. Not too far from the bay a group of dolphins started following our boat and swimming alongside us. It was amazing! I was so thrilled to see them there, and at one point there were 3 that kept side by side, surfacing and jumping together, then diving back down. I think it was Shane, Mom and Dad saying their hellos, and making sure we were enjoying the trip.
Not long after that Cecil caught the first of two black finned Tuna. Beautifully coloured fish. I felt sorry that he had to give up his life for our sport, but that's the way of the world I guess. Next our new friend from Toronto caught one, but our guides suggested that one be released telling us that they keep the sea happy if you keep one, then give one back.
That was the end of the fishing, even though our guide tried his best to do more and better. I felt bad that Billy didn't get a chance to reel one in, but am glad that that was the end of the catches.
Further out, we saw several sea rays flying out of the water. Didn't even know they did that, but it was really cool to watch! Our guide told us it was either part of mating, or part of celebrating that they had mated...who knows...they looked pretty darn happy flying through the air!!
Things were quiet for a while, but we later found a sea turtle floating on top of the water. I didn't get a good picture of him, but I did get a good look at him, and sometimes you have to just celebrate the memory. The rest of the ride home was pretty uneventful, another dolphin siting, but otherwise no catches and no sitings.
When we got back to the beach, the monkey's were back out, so that was great that Robin got to see them as she'd missed them the day before. They are pretty amazing little creatures. It was a glorious end to a glorious day!
