Snorkel and a day of rest

After a good night rest, we rose at 06:30. Beautiful weather, nice temperatures! We go for breakfast at 07:00 and afterwards set sail for Playa Conchal, where we go for a swim and go to snorkel. We reach the beach in half an hour and run directly into the water. At least Timo does. We’re at a big beach, Playa Brasilito, but you don’t see anything, because of the amount of sand that is in the water; visibility is not even one (1) meter. No ideal circumstances to snorkel. We take the car and drive a beach further to Playa Conchal, which was the first idea to go to. Here the sea is not that rough. Timo first swims alone, sees some little blue fishes, a few striped ones black and yellow and a small sea snake. When Eef joins Timo waves are higher than before and visibility is poor again. We don’t see more fishes, than before. Shells from the beach are in our trousers and sticking all over our body. We lie down a while and check out the brown pelicans, sitting on the rocks and watch a couple of frigate birds fly over. The birds fly on high altitude. Since we have a professional eye now, we can spot them quite easily. After and hour we leave back to Tamarindo, as usual just lying around is not our thing. We remove the shells by taking a shower, write the dairy, drink a beer and make sure we know everything we need to know for the return tomorrow. That is less good news. We rest and swim at the swimming pool. Another quick shower and then we go back to the beach for another beautiful sunset. This second time it is even more beautiful. Today we don’t eat at the hotel’s restaurant, but go out to the village. It is not much of a problem to drive in the dark here, because we already drove this road a few times the last couple of days and it is not that far either. We have a salad, calamari’s with garlic (Timo) a lot of garlic and a big meat brochette with salad for Eef. At 21:00 we’re awfully tired and we go to bed. Timo watches some TV (Mission Impossible II) and sleeps at 22:30.
