“Sightings from the Veranda in Costa Rica”
|Last night’s view of Atenas from the veranda.|
After a wonderful anniversary day with pool time cut short due to rain, we had a delicious dinner and evening lounging in the electricity-restored screening room. The power in the room had gone out before we left for Nicaragua, which was repaired by Julio while we were away.
|Street view as we drove through Managua. There are security guards at every intersection. If you’re traveling to Managua, Nicaragua, we had a fabulous taxi driver. He has a college degree in “travel” and conducts tours. Jeffrey Ocampo at phone: 7782-3211, email: email@example.com.|

|Tom opted for pasta last night at the hotel, knowing he’d be back to healthy eating when we returned to Atenas.|
|My side order of sauteed vegetables at The Market Restaurant at the hotel.|
|I ordered grilled salmon on a bed of thinly sliced zucchini with gluten and starch-free sauce.|
Next, we’ll forward the completed forms by email to Ponant along with the “passenger information” forms with copies of our passports, credit card information (for incidentals on the cruise), etc.
I’m rushing a bit today, so we can get outside in the sunshine before the afternoon clouds roll in and the rain begins to fall. Swimming and lounging in the pool is a favorite daily activity that we’ll miss tomorrow afternoon when we head to the doctor’s office.

|One year ago, almost every evening during the 33-night cruise, we played pool at this self-leveling (for rough seas) pool table in The Colony Club. For more photos, please click here.|
