Today we left Granada, and headed for San Jose del Sur Beach in Southern Nicaragua. When we arrived, we spent 1.5 hours on the beach before lunch. I used this time well to get my self a nice sunburn (it was cloudy...didn´t think it would happen). Highlights of the day include:
-Banana split for $1.25
-Boat ride on the Pacific Ocean
-Catching a MACKERAL fish during said boat ride. We were the only boat of four that was a fishing boat, and I happened to be sitting in the back when the fish struck the line. They told me to real it in, and I did. I have been wanting to fish on the Pacific, and I finally got to! I will post a picture with my catch next week! (Definate highlight of my day!)
-Seeing whales during said boat ride (also a first)!
-Boat ride took us to a private beach with beautiful sand. There was also many hermit crabs all over the beach. How cool! We had hermit crab races. Some of us wandered down the beach to a more rocky area and looked at sea urchins, small fish, and of course more hermit crabs.
-While writing this blog I felt another earthquake. Definately the strongest I have felt yet...I really don´t like these things. Ugh.
Pictures of the most beautiful and amazing day yet to come next week!
