Quick trip to the tropics

Anna and I are on the way home from a quick trip to the tropics to get some things ready for this season and slip out on the boat for a couple of days and check out some new places. We spent a couple of days at a new lodge up in the mountains. This place had it all for the animal lover, we watched butterflies come out of the pupae, fed hummingbirds by hand, played with jaguars, snuck a kiss under a huge waterfall and even caught rainbow trout out of the swimming pool. .....yep, out of the swimming pool.

Back in Jaco, I got to hand feed some 100+ pound yellowfin tuna....... lots of sushi. Also got to play with striped marlin each day and dozens of big dolphin. At the end of the rainy season, there are some big logs out there loaded with fish of all shapes and sizes: jacks, triple tail, triggerfish, several species of bonito, tuna, wahoo, dorado, sails and marlin and hundreds of aggrivating 20-30 pound sharks. Catch something on a little hook, then put it on a bigger hook and hold on, something good is going to eat it.

How's the weather been while I was gone?
