Swim count for day three hit 4! It is only day four in Costa Rica now but it feels like we have slotted into beach life and being on holiday well in that unless I look it up, I don't know the date, day of the week or how many nights we have been here. It is warm, the pool is warm and the sea is warm. I am happily swimming as many times as the girls but not for so long. They swim for 2+ hours straight.... continued below
We have spent the last couple of days relaxing and swimming. It is hot so the pool is the best place to be. Especially when nature comes to visit. We were finishing breakfast and getting ready to swim when a huge iguana came to lounge at the pool. No problem, the girls and Rob just got in with a chilled spectator. We also tried snorkelling yesterday. It seemed strange we hadn't bothered to dip in the sea on our doorstep. To be fair it does look muddy but Rob went out and as soon as you get to chest level it's perfectly clear. It is why we chose Playa Hermosa so we all went snorkelling. Rob and Sophia went out and saw heaps of different fish. I had a little go with Olivia and we saw a box fish amoungat lots of little black and grey striped fish.
Rob is off diving this morning so we look forward to hearing what he has seen.
The girls are a bit red and though sleeping well, tired as they fight off the last, or start of colds. Sophia was upset this morning as she was missing home a bit. We talked about it and she is ok when she realised that instead she got to swim when she wanted and had all four of us together. I think with the heat it all just gets a bit overwhelming sometimes. It was all forgotten over breakfast when they had to get up three times to see a green iguana that was passing, then two fluffy squirrels in the coconut palm tree and finally a larger grey iguana. It is amazing to see so many different creatures just by us.
