First stop: Saving Turtles in Costa Rica

Because they are cute and endangered

80 °F

Writing this post in advance because once Tim and I arrive in San Jose on Wednesday morning we have less than 24 hours there before we take a bus and boat to our next destination - La Tortuga Feliz - www.latortugafeliz.com - where we will stay for 7 nights at the mouth of the Rio Pacuare on the Caribbean coast just north of Puerto Limón. We are volunteering turtle conservationists!

The organization's mission is to protect the sea turtles and their eggs that are at risk because of poachers in the area. We do night patrols each night in 4 hours shifts. No electricity means we will not be able to call or email while we are there...so we thought it best to give you the heads up!

Something is wrong with your dates. It is like you are living in some futuristic time where the months go higher than 12 and all posts occur on the 9th of the month. This post is from the 16th month through the 23rd month, I would call the months by their names, but I do not know them. So, I will make them up. The 16th month is Drivetober (since 16 is the driving age) and the 23rd month is Jordanuary (for the great Michael).
