Avoiding Crocodiles

Day eleven in Costa Rica, we had breakfast and decided to walk along the beach in Tambor. It had rained the night before, so the water was muddy.

We walked back to the creek we had passed before. It was wider due to the rain, but looked a lot less intimidating in the daylight.

We decided not to cross this time because apparently crocodiles like to hunt near the surf where the water is shallow.

Instead we went to Tambor Tropical, the wedding venue, and enjoyed some pina colatas.

We chatted with some folks who used to live in Michigan but who had bought retirement homes in Costa Rica. They invited the Canadian couple next to us back to their house because the couple was researching buying property in the area. Perhaps future neighbors.

They also told us that the owners of H&B have a second puppy because the first one they owned wandered down to the river after a rain and got eaten by a crocodile!

For dinner we ate where the local Ticos like to eat. Mick enjoyed his meal.

I had steak and salad.

I also ate a clove of raw garlic to ward off the mosquitoes. Maybe not the best idea for my stomach.

Our friends who got married are planning to travel to Nicaragua on Saturday, and we have a week left of vacation, so we’ll tag along. We’ll miss H&B Lodge and Restaurant!
