Got up early and it was cloudy again.  Made plans to go to Jaco to zip line and see the Pacific.  We turned the wrong way and ended up going up a mountain that was an adventure itself.  We came to a bridge that didn’t look like it could hold a vehicle so Robby got out and walked across followed by Sara and Courtney.  Robby wouldn’t walk fast enough so Don gunned the car and Robby took off running.  If you could have seen Robby’s face as he was looking back trying to outrun the truck.  I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.  We made it across safely and up the mountain. 

We stopped and asked for directions and it was like the people had never seen Americans before.  Everyone came out of their houses to look at us and stare.  It was strange.  We turned around and came back down and found our way to Jaco.

Both Courtney's and my camera stopped working today, probably because they got wet yesterday.  Lucky we have four more.

Robby and Courtney went on the zip line but Sara changed her mind.

Don, Sara and I drove up the mountain and had a great time.  We went through some bad mud and almost got stuck, through a ditch a backhoe was digging to let a waterfall pass over the road and a really steep road.

We finally saw a Toucan.

Drove back down to pick up Courtney and Robby.  Talked to the tour guides about going to Panama.

Stopped for dinner at a restaurant in the mall parking lot and then went into the mall.  Sara took pictures of the McDonald's menu with the Spanish names.

When we left Robby discovered a spider in his seat and Don told him it was a brown recluse which resulted in a manhunt to get him out.

Went home again and watched more dvds.
