"Let's go this way."

I mentioned yesterday that Julie is a type-A personality, and she shows that trait here. This lifeguard was kind enough to rescue her from a situation in which he would have been fully justified in thinking that she was foolish and lacked foresight.

Yet as soon as she got into his kayak, she somehow thought she needed to point out where she wanted him to take her. He paddled across the estuary to pick her up, and he was obviously fully capable of knowing that he should bring her right back across the estuary mouth to the other side. Duh.

If Julie told him, "Please take me to the other shore over there," do you think he might have been tempted to reply, "Gee, ma'am, I had planned to take you to 5th Avenue and Central Park South." I am sure he was very polite however, as Costa Ricans treat tourists and visitors very well.

I will continue with more of this story tomorrow.

If you have not yet checked out the photos of Spain this week on our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, please come take a look.

Oh, she looks like she's enjoying this rescue very much.

Oh, darn! I thought maybe Julie would have taken over and done the paddling, but on second thought, I guess she did take over!

Or, maybe Jule was pointing out a large predator of some type and making sure they avoided it.
