warm!) We stopped at a little restaurant on the water for lunch where we got some serious hammock time and rested before the next stop- Red Frog Beach. Then the rain came. And came, and kept coming...and still kept coming. At first we passed it off as a tropical afternoon rain shower...not so much as it turned out! It was steady for a good 2 hours, and there was no dryness in sight- everything was just, well, wet

It finally stopped raining on our way back in and itīs safe to say that weīre dry and happy now. But our sarongs and clothes are not.

We just finished our daily fruit smoothies-pina y banano por Carter y mango por Jaime/Himey. Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, delicious. Now itīs off to dinner! XOXOXOXOXOX
Get on a boat and take a diving/snorkeling tour of the islands, of course!! And so we did. We met the boat at 9am this morning just up the street from our hotel at Bocas Water Sports. There we got our gear and chatted with the local divemasters and instructors...all the while watching the impending dark rain clouds creep closer and closer. But we decided, what the hell, letīs do it..not to mention we had already paid! It was great in the beginning- Carter even got in the water and snorkeled for a bit, and I enjoyed my first dive of the day sans wetsuit (because, yes, the water is
