As you can see in this photo, they are all enjoying their trip very much. I was not with them on this trip, as her brother and his wife visited Costa Rica with Julie during a time when I was at work in Phoenix.
Who took the photo? Their river guide. He obviously can compose and take a photo well even while paddling a raft.
Costa Rica pays attention to visitor safety, and they required life jackets on the raft trip.
This trip is well worth taking. The guides point out wildlife that would be missed by the untrained eye. During the trip, the guide got out a long knife and sliced fresh pineapple to eat while floating on the river.
After the trip, there is a stop for lunch before returning to Tamarindo. The lunch offered a choice between tilapia or chicken. We recommend the tilapia. It is very good.
Although in this photo my wife was in front of the camera, she is even more comfortable behind a camera, as her photos on her two websites illustrate. She operates www.ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com and www.VivalaVoyage.com.
Viva la Voyage.com is a travel photo site on which she posts a series of photos from some where in the world every Sunday. This week she is showing some spectacular wildlife photos that she took earlier this year on a photo safari in Tanzania, Africa.
