Early arrival in costa rica. waited for toni's friends who brought BOTH of us lovely gifts. Painted slab of wood that matched a painting on the gift bag and a book about costa rica. We wandered the local bazaar and sat on the beach. Very dark volcanic rock mixed with the sand so it was a little dirty. the water was wonderful. wish i had a boogy board for the waves. They were strong and great. bought souvenirs for girls and back on the ship. Tried leechi nuts and they were good. Pool, spa and shower. Sea day tomorrow.
