very well have been the oldest in our group. He was entertaining, always had a new joke. Jane, she is as fiesty as it gets & delightful... I want to be like them if I reach their age.She was always getting after Bud to talk louder/put your hearing aid in...our waitress loved teasing Bud. I was amazed at their energy. Jane had been in the hospital for many months this year, this was a test of her endurance.
This is Joanne and Elaine they live in Salt lake...they are two of BUDS SISTERS. They too were inspiring... Joanne so warm spirited, fun and interested in everything going on. Elaine Harris accomplished in so many ways, mother of 8, grandmother of 48 and great grandmother of 48 and quite the traveler who is in NO WAY going to slow it down now. Her husband passed away a year ago and she has chosen to live and do.
They were all so good to each other.
THESE TWO chose to do the ZIPLINE over the jungle in Costa Rica...you should have seen my face when they told me that!
They loved it!
The rest of us chose the Jungle walk here:
climbing down into and then going back up and out about 1 1/2 mi. = 45 mins.
The carribean side gets much more rain, greener and more tourists.Their rainy season is june-nov. All roads
in these countries are narrow and its like going through a thick heavy forest.
Poisonous prickly tree
Best pineapple ever. The people buy it 2 for 3.00
Costa rica is #1 in pineapple growing and one buyer purchases over 90%...I have noticed costco sells it.
You can live like a king for 3,000 in costa rica with a live in maid...what a temptation!
If your visiting she warned not to use large bills like 50-100.00 as people there are watching us and it might not be safe...remember, use small bills. I never carried a purse at all on this trip.
