I like to sail. When I was in high school in St. Louis County, Missouri, I was a Sea Scout, which is part of the Boy Scouts, except we learned about and went sailing instead of camping. We sailed in a wide part of the Mississippi River just above the Alton Lock & Dam. We had to stay out of the way of the large and frequent barges.
I think sailing in the Pacific off the coast of Tamarindo is much better.
Today is Mother's Day in the USA, but not in Costa Rica. Mother's Day in Costa Rica is in August, and it is a national holiday. People get off work and many businesses are closed.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos of some of the wild animals and a coffee plantation in Tanzania, Africa.
