After a very humid night with heavy rain bouncing off the tin roof, the dawn chorus was enough to wake us up at 07h00. Greeted by a beautiful blue sky and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, we ate a very leisurely breakfast, so leisurely that some never arrived, before boarding the bus and heading for Cahuita, a national park covering coral reefs, coastal rain forest and semi-mangroves. Walking some 5 miles along the white sandy beach, with palm trees gently bending in the warm breeze was sheer delight. Overhead, howler monkeys lay sunning themselves, as did a family of iguana. On the ground, leaf-cutter ants busied themselves carrying their loads along cleared paths whilst large spiders hung awaiting their next meal.
Having been made an offer I couldn't refuse, I left 30 years of (office) work behind and now 'work' outdoors.
As Nehru so neatly said, we live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Thus, with eyes open and asking questions, I hope to continue learning through experience and travel, as these are as education in themselves.
Happy reading - I shall be happy travelling ...
