First up was Annabelle Rose Sylvanowicz, 14 years old and in the 8th grade. She is the oldest daughter of my daughter, Kerry, and lives in northern Massachusetts.
She first flew to Colorado to spend a couple of days here with family and especially her cousin Mackenzie.
Activities include a visit to the Butterfly Farm and indoor rock climbing.
Annabelle and I then flew down to Costa Rica.
First up was a trip to Monteverde and a soaring over the rainforest on a zip line.
Then tours on other days to a coffee/sugar/cacao plantation and both day and nocturnal explorations on foot of the rainforest we had earlier sailed above.
We then headed down to the Pacific Coast for warm weather, a crocodile swamp boat tour, beach time and an introduction to the surfing center of Jaco.
