Morning all (Friday) I'm on the bus.

I have an 'under the sea' party this weekend with a scatter of 4 year olds. Party food here I come.

I had a friend who died of cancer few years ago and he lost a lot of weight before he died.
He said he had found the secret to weight loss and he wanted to share it with the world.
Eat less.

Always makes me smile as I fiddle with the bathroom weighing scales to push the needle slightly in front of the zero.

Buenas tardes, gang.

Over towns, mountains, rain forests and banana fields and I've finally settled in down here in Costa Rica. It's been mega-hot the last few days, (35 C - 95 F) and today finally some relief with clouds. Hoping for some rain to be honest, could use an excuse to just sit here on the porch with coffee for a few hours. Of course I've been spending time in the Caribbean Sea, warm as a bathtub and turquoise blue waters are good for the body, mind, and soul. Keeping it very Zen, biked 20K yesterday on a rusty beach cruiser...easier said than done! Well worth it. Haven't busted out the camera much yet, as I am more focused on living the moment in reality as opposed to capturing it on a digital camera. Some pix from the little Cessna (not an Otter!) I took with 2 other passengers the other day:



Current view from the jungle porch:



Pura vida.

You've always got the best photos big S!

That plate of food makes me hungry for real food and looks a lot more filling than my lunch of granola and strawberries!

Mesa that is what I call a door! Those grey tubes must be the hydraulics to open and close the thing. I would be a bit worried about being shut in though lol.

Under the sea party sounds like a great idea, I have not heard of one of those before.

Ruby/HappyAF Weekdays the market is not too overcrowded, you can see from the pics it's not too bad. Weekends a different matter of course

BigSomb that sounds awesome, I especially like the pic from the porch, it looks like something out of a Graham Green novel (except there's no booze in your photo)

Gotta hand it to Serena Williams, you don't get to be no 1 for a decade without having some True Grit. She came back from the dead and was coughing so bad she couldn't speak at first

BigS, sounds lovely. I'd be hoping for a rainy day on the porch too. swimming in the Caribbean would be a treat.

Brynn, how are you doing? Granola and strawberries is good. I had chicken salad.

Ok! Finally the weather is good enough for some skydive re-currency training on Sat. So exciting. I'm finally going to pick back up one of the things i used to enjoy the most before alcohol took it away. I'll give the sky a high 5 for every one on the weekend bus.

I have to say what an amazing athlete. I've played a little bit of tennis and it was pretty hilarious how bad I am. The front hand is ok but with the back hand I might as well have my eyes closed.

Driver don't stop - Lily wants to get on and she always steals my sandwich fillings.

First weekend song - inspired by Lily. Best you stop for her driver - otherwise we will never hear the end of it.
