Cast And Crew

Crew on Marina del Rey 3

This place is a photographer's paradise. (I learned how to say photographer in Spanish yesterday; fotógrafo.) These are more images of the crew and passengers of the Marlin del Rey on Wednesday afternoon. Capitán Leo is second from left at the top and at the helm in the second picture. In the last picture, Carolyn enjoys conditions she would not find back home.
We had a wonderful experience yesterday on a historic and architectural tour of Liberia, the provincial capital. I cannot say too many good things about 3 Monkies, the tour company we have always used here. The highlight was something we would never have found ourselves. There is an old fort that became a jail that became abandoned that will one day be the provincial museum of Guanacaste. (¿Cuándo? ¿Quién sabe? Esto es Costa Rica.) For now it is a music school tor teens. Several of them let me take their pictures. Their faces and their art were heartbreakingly beautiful. As we were leaving, I heard one young violinist playing Carlos Gardel's Por Una Cabeza. It almost brought tears to my eyes. Pix as soon as I can edit them. There were so many.

Bob, beautiful images. It sounds like you are having a great time. Looking forward to seeing tomorrow's images. said...

The sail is always a good time.

I read an article years ago about a young girl in Liberia, about 12 as I recall, who was a very accomplished classical pianist. She must have been trained at the school that you mention today.

I look forward to your post tomorrow.
