After a ride in a trailer pulled by tractor, we took a hike along the river in the dry forest and saw a number of native trees, plants, and vines with help from our guide Freddy. Plants included acacia trees and leaves that smelled like licorice. Most notable was our sighting of White Faced Monkeys.
Following our hike we had time for a little siesta before leaving for our second visit to the beach. This time in daylight! We enjoyed time in the water and a delicious meal prepared for us on sight.
As the sun settled in for the night we headed back to Horizonte for our final sleep in Costa Rica. Tomorrow morning we put on our matching traveling shirts and make our way back to Minnesota.
With thanks to Sra. Cutter Sullivan, we share the following quote by Oliver Wendall Holmes. " A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions."
