Pollard Family Sabbatical Costa Rica 2008 travel blog

The bus picked us up at 7:30am to go on our canopy tour. After putting on helmets, leather gloves and harnesses, the guides gave us quick instructions. There were 12 zip cables, one rappel, one rope bridge and a Tarzan swing. It was an adventurous morning! The kids rode the zip lines with guides, while Brodie and I did our own. They were not the least bit hesitant and had huge smiles on their faces. The zip lines were pretty mellow but it was really fun to ride through the tops of the trees of the rainforest. The Tarzan swing was anything but mellow – we climbed a 30 foot high platform and jumped off of it to swing through the forest. There were several teenagers and adults who chickened out – but not Emi and Jack. Brodie and I were truly amazed and in shock.

At 11am we were in the car headed back to Potrero. Grandpa had out his GPS unit to navigate but Jack told him “we should just follow the road we came in on.” With stops for gas, lunch in Canas, and at the super Mercado Wendy for milk and fruit, the total trip took us just under 5 hours. We all were appreciative that our car Dusty did such a great job but we were glad to be home. Emi and Jack were the first in the pool. At dinner that night, we heard the howls of howler monkeys very close to the house.
