Today I need to mow the lawn, but I’m waiting for the temperature outside to get up to at least 40 degrees. I have no interest in playing in grass that has frost on it – spring frost being something I feel about much like the daffodils and tulips – it makes me sad and my head droops. Not to mention the shivers of my body.
While I wait, I decided to share more of Costa Rica. We continued down the canal
where vines grow into the water along the edges to take root and proliferate
and termites build nests on the tree trunks (that brown lumpy part to the left side of the trunk).
We see an interesting lizard – the Jesus Christ lizard, so called because he can walk (and run) on water.
As well as another type of heron
and bananas – or plantains.
Our water tour being complete now, we head back to the bus with stops to enjoy (and capture) more beautiful flora.
Heading now to the Veragua Rainforest, we pass a school where children play in the yard,
and another school, perhaps, but there are no children outside just now.
We pass someone’s home, complete with satellite dishes
we cross a canal on one of two bridges the guide describes as “oh Gawd” bridges
and fields of green with forests and mountains in the background.
We pass a yard with cattle lying about, perhaps Brahmas? I’m not certain, but there were many hillsides where the cattle and chickens roamed. No buffalo though.
Heading into a denser forest, through someone’s yard to follow this road because the road the tour usually takes had washed out and was under repair
into the Veragua Rainforest.
More of the rainforest will come another day.I hope you are enjoying this tour as much as we did, even if it is not a live tour.
I wish you a day filled with enough.
