So far, so good, as this group of young women walk down a little path that connects the beachfront road with the beach in the southern end of Tamarindo bay.
This reminds me of a time that I had the bad judgment to suggest that my wife join my brother and his family and me on a Boundary Waters Wilderness Area canoe trip.
After paddling several miles down the first lake, we had to carry the canoes, paddles, fishing gear, and all of the camping gear and food about a mile to reach the next lake. More on that challenge in the days ahead.
We have photos of the wildlife of Africa posted this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
