So.... we got back from vacation last night. We went to Costa Rica for a week. We stayed on the pacific coast, in the northwest region called Guanacaste. We stayed in a villa in a resort - we were right by the restaurant and the pool, and had a great view of the coast and ocean. I'll post more pics as they become available.
These photos are from the Congo Trail Canopy Tour near our resort. Becky (obviously, the smartest of our foursome) stayed at the Beach, while Misty Leigh, Marty and I payed to be strapped into harnesses and zipped through the rain forest along cables 60 to 80 feet above the ground. It was neat after you were on the cable; the hooking up to the zip line while standing at the edge of the swinging platform (not nailed or bolted into the tree - just attached by cables) was what made my heart beat fastest. By the seventh or eighth zip line, I enjoyed it. However, I probably wouldn't do it again.
I think it's important to recognize different personality types, and photos taken in a stressful situations help to elicit those particular traits:
Marty, the US Marshal, displays marked determination.
Misty Leigh, a former Miss Arkansas Contestant, wants to be "Your Next Miss Congo Canopy Tour."
Aaron, avid Target Shopper, grimaces in absolute terror.
They actually did get a photo of me somewhat smiling.
