A two day post
Yesterday I started into the Monteverde cloud forest with high hopes of being surrounded by wildlife but it was not to be, which I sort of expected given various other forays with similar expectations. But this is the most famous cloud forest in Central America so I was curious about what that would be like.
The forest is preserved largely as a result of the efforts of 8 Quaker families from Alabama who settled here after WW2.
And that’s what we saw – birds. Beautiful birds, very shy and way out of range for my little point and shoot.
I was underwhelmed by the forest. I guess I’m going to follow the sea. More on this another time – hurrying to get this done and going again this morning.
Which we followed for about 100 miles, to Manuel Antonio.
