Day 10, 11, 12: Flickr Photostream
ecoeco2014's photostream on Flickr.Cabo Blanco is a beautiful place -- it's obvious why it was an early target for designation as a protected area! The park staff provided a welcoming evening presentation about the park's history and natural history. On Wednesday morning, we awoke to a gorgeous sunrise looking east toward the mainland. After so many adventures, we set off on our morning hike with perhaps a bit less energy than usual! But the 2-hour hike to the beach was well worth the effort -- We enjoyed several hours in the sun, sand and surf, and especially enjoyed the snacks of watermelon, papaya and pineapple provided by the ranger and kitchen staff! We took it easy on our return hike, along which we encountered an NMU grad & his family from Munising (small world!), several monkeys, and a deer! Thursday morning, we posed for several photos before boarding the bus for Paquera, where we boarded the ferry to Puntarenas -- San Jose bound!
