Last night we went out for dinner to a restaurant called Pasta Basta. The infinitive is bastar, which means sufficient, rather than the English connotation that immediately comes to mind. Christopher has wanted to go there all week and it turns out that Wi-Fi was his motivation rather than pasta. Funnily enough all the restaurants have Wi-Fi and Pasta Basta's Internet was down at dinner last night. The pasta was good though and it was quite a pleasant surprise. The sign on the road made me think of a dusty dark little restaurant at street level but it turns out that it was one level up and was quite well appointed spacious and bright. The dogs, Chopper and his girlfriend Lucy, came along for dinner as well
After dinner we walked back along the beach and once we navigated the alleyway that ran down to the beach it was a beautiful walk. It was a clear night with a sky bursting with stars. We will have to take a look at a star chart because apparently the Southern Cross is visible from this latitude.
Once we got back home we went next door to where we could get an internet connection and tried to call Leone, Tricia’s mom, and wish her a Happy Birthday but the phone rang right through to voice mail so we assume that the well wishers were lined up. Happy Birthday Leone!!!
It was with a fair bit of sadness that we packed up for the next part of our journey. Not that we aren’t excited and looking forward to our wanderings but Casa Nuestra Familia is just such a perfect beach house.
I was up a little earlier and out for my walk on the beach at 545 this morning and ran into quite a few people that had obviously forgot to go to bed last night. Lots people still sitting around beach fires enjoying the dawning of a new day and yet another sunrise
We had to be out of the house at 10 and we made it so that the cleaners could get ready for the next renters. Ferries run on the odd hours going back to Puntarenas. Rather than get all worked up trying to catch the 11 o’clock, we really have no agenda. We took our time and arrived shortly after 11 to catch the 1 o’clock boat. We took a little detour given that we had so much time to check out the little village of Playa Cochote. It was a real pretty local spot on the Gulf of Nicoya.
I guess that Sunday is a big day for the ferries because as we arrived at the dock about 1115 the line up was up the hill, for the small boat at 1. It looked like we were going to be the first car to board the 3 o’clock ferry but luckily they pack the cars in pretty tight and after a little while they made rooms and we were on of the last 3 or 4 cars to make it on the ferry.
Kids have just arrived back from the concession with Tricia, Remee was very happy as she has found her primary food group, a hot dog. Christopher also is happy because he found a deep fried taco. Tricia and I just had to settle for beautiful ripe avocados and green papaya.
Tonight we are heading back to El Cafetal where we stayed at the beginning of our journey. It has a great pool for the kids, we know how to find it and 3 of the 4 of us consider that it also has a great breakfast. Remee will make do.
