Day 12

My mom and I went for a long walk on the beach at dawn. We saw a large beached sea turtle which was surrounded by about 35 vultures. Every time the waves would come in and cover the turtle, they would fly off, only to return when the waves receded again. 

A little later in the morning, E Ben and I took Jude for a hike to a nice viewpoint up in the cliffs above the beach. When we got back down to the beach, the waves were perfect for bodysurfing. We swam for a while and the boys built a sandcastle. 

My mom and I had a lovely late lunch at La Luna.

My grandmother Ninette died one year ago today, and we spent a lot of time thinking and talking about her. If she had lived in Costa Rica, we think that La Luna would have been her favorite restaurant. 

We took a quick photo of the two of us before walking home and taking the kids to the beach for the rest of the day.

Ah, sounds so nice! What a great way to remember your grandma together on the beach. Hi to Peggy!

The mental image of a beach sea turtle surrounded by 35 vultures reminds me of work somehow.
