A short trip through Costa Rica

Okay, we ran through Costa Rica in only two days because we were there a couple years ago. So, here are the Costa Rica pictures from this trip along with a few "best of¨pictures from a couple years ago.

They had some really nice bus stops in Costa Rica. Here is Tara waiting on a bus north. I took this standing on the beach. Thought about going for a swim while waiting, but it was only a few minutes until our bus left.
For our one outting in Costa Rica, we went to a beach in Uvita. We walked about an hour (our book said the beach was just outside of town...) and then ended up at a national park entrance where we had to pay. So, we bit the bullet and paid the $6 each. We later found out a free beach existed, but it was nice to be two of the three people on a couple miles of beach.
Walking along the road we found a turtle trying to cross. We helped him get across, but he didn't want to return the favor an pose for us. So, we ate him for dinner. Just kidding. We left him to be on his way.
On the beach, we found a nice tiny sand dollar. If we could have gotten a real dollar for it, we would have sold it, but we couldn't.
I won the picture contest for getting closest to a crab. They are really fast. Tara wondered how I got so close to this one when she couldn't get nearly as close. I shouldn't have told her it was dead...
On the way back from the beach, the sun was raging and I was burning, so I covered my head. Later, it got windy, so, at Tara's suggestion, I kept the towel on my head with a pair of swimming goggles. Fortunately, no pictures exist of that.In Uvita, we stayed in a cute little cabin. I look like a doll in a doll house in this picture. Well, except that dolls don't normally have sweat stained clothing.
This sunset from Quepos was a great one since it had been raining about five minutes before. Nice photo, Tara.
Okay, now a few from the past. This first one is a quetzal, considered the most beautiful bird around unless Tara and I are in the forest. This was at Monte Verde Cloud Forest, through a scope.
A nice pic of us on the way to Corcovado National Park. Aren't we cute? We should get married. Oh, right, did that.
Some hummingbirds at the feeder. They like sugar almost as much as I do.
Ready to glide through the canopy like monkeys. Monkeys attached to a couple wires, but monkeys nonetheless.
Lastly, this guy came out to see us one night while Tara cowered in fear in a corner.
Okay, that's all for Costa Rica past and present. I don't have any pictures from the future, or I would share.
