Since we enjoyed the 10 mile Golfito hike to the Rainforest Mountain Reserve last time we were here, we invited cruiser friends Ian and Mary (MV Aegis) and Laura (SV Carinthian) to join us again. This time, we planned after reaching the top, to take what looked like a cut through into town versus returning the same way. Well, that didn’t bode well.
There was a landslide which wiped out part of the cut through, which was appearing more and more to be just a path cut by rain versus walking path. So 1/5 of the way down the 1400 foot elevation, we agreed to abort the cut through and return home the original way.
Luckily a friendly truck stopped to pick us up and give us a ride back partway through and Ian then saw his first Costa Rican toucan!
Too Much Fishing Gear?
I thought I’d review our cache of fishing paraphernalia and realized I couldn’t part with anything! At least it got reorganized into Trolling, Jigging/Spinning, Ballyhoo Rigs, Repair, and General stuff needed to make leaders and such.
Panama Here We Come – Again
So, we’re ready to head back to Panama soon. Old friends from Panama, Torsten and/or Laura (SV Carinthian) may catch a ride with us as well, which would make night watches easier and be lots of fun. Stay tuned!
