Say Cheese

We had another beautiful January day at the beach! Of course the highlight of the day was our trip to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Nope, not my first visit...but it was the first time I've ever tasted Sticky Bun ice cream! It was delish!

I think I make a great cow. I can eat like one, that's for sure.

hermit crabs

cocodrilo (aka: crocodile)

"Jesus Christ" lizard (named for its ability to walk on water)

two-toed sloth

some animal i don't remember the name of

carriblanca monkey (eating a stolen sandwich)

Costa Rican deer

Scarlet Macaw (aka: parrot)

another hermit crab


(animals not pictured: toucans, squirrel monkeys, purple eels, geckos)

Were beach bums:

Ate lots of good food:
(my prize was a giant ball of crystallized sugar. a far cry from the fruit loop prizes in the states.)

Relaxed in hammocks (which turned out to be nearly a daily/nightly event):

Swung from trees (or cables tied to trees):

Drove through rivers:

Made phone calls (on the phone booth with the most beautiful view in the world):

Went swimming in "La Picina Natural" (that had cloudy water):

Hiked through the jungle:

Went shopping (aka: " WalMart Latin America"):

Saw a volcano (at least the crater of one):

And went to the temple...or rather saw the temple:

Yeah, so it was a great trip. And now I feel smug because I have a mid-winter tan. Although, going back to work wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. It's only day two and I already feel like I need another vacation. Yikes! I guess for now I'll have to escape to my memories of Costa Rica... Sigh.
