Before we get to the exciting part of day 2, I need to back up and show pictures from the first night...with all the airline fiasco and the four to five hour car drive to La Fortuna on yesterday's post...I forgot to mention that us three girls had a lovely first night dinner and enjoyed a few drinks and a dip in the hot springs while waiting for Sean join to us.
Now...on to day 2.
When we were planning this trip, we wanted to do more than just lay on a beach, don't get me wrong, the days we did get to lay out on the beach were well worth it (sunburn and all) however...we were all about crossing items off the bucket list and taking full advantage of all the things Costa Rica had to offer.
Whitewater rafting class IV rapids included.
Of the four of us, Miss Football was the only one who had been whitewater rafting before...Kristin and I have just done the usual floating down the river...you know where you float all day and a raft of beer follows you...the only thing you worry about is if you have enough drinks to last you the length of the river.
Things you have to worry about while whitewater rafting.
Turning around only to see that your guide fell off the raft and is now in the rapids...not scary, realizing that you are the only one paying attention and try to help him back in to the raft...a little scary... but probably just for him.
However, realizing that Miss Football fell off the raft and is now stuck in a whirlpool...that's kinda scary...she blogs about that incident here. No worries, she is perfectly ok.
Sean, our fearless camera guy, brought along a waterproof camera...we do have video...which is priceless btw, but we are in the process of editing out over 4 hours of filming. I'm sure you don't want to hear him screaming at us girls to "Peddle" or all of us girls sometimes letting some four letter words slip...usually at him.
Hopefully these pictures can describe the experience better than I can. It seriously is one of those, "words can't describe" experiences.
After rafting, we were treated to one of the best lunches I had on the entire trip...we then went back to the resort, where it rained on us...it was the start of rainy season...then we got all dressed up and went to dinner.
