Once I left this Photo Stop! it wasn’t long before I’d be in La Fortuna for my second time. Just on the north side of town I spotted a couple of motorcycles parked at a hotel on the side of the road. The drivers looked like serious bikers Alejandro Villanueva Womens Jersey so I turned around and went to go talk to them. Hugo and Ron were just out for a nice drive and stopped in for a coffee.
They were just out for a drive and I could just tell right away how much they loved doing that. We had a lovely visit and they now have a place to stay on Vancouver Island when they come north. Neither one had been out of Costa Rica yet.
After exchanging contact info with my newest friends, Hugo and Ron, it was time to head back home. Since coming up here several days ago there was now a detour on the highway. We had to go down a short paved road and then turn onto a gravel road that looked like it had just been built. Another Kodak moment. You just can’t make this stuff up.
Once through this little detour the rest of the drive back was uneventful. Although from La Fortuna home the road stayed dry and traffic was extremely light so it was a wonderful uneventful drive.
It’s Sunday now and we’re going to Cartago where Donna’s son Nick lives. Driving through San Jose is quite something, but since it was Sunday traffic was lighter and mellower than it is during the week. Then she took me on Hwy 218 which climbs up over a mountain on a very nice twisty road in an area they call Llano Grande.
When we arrived at Nick’s we dropped off our stuff and then headed out for an afternoon drive to Orosi. In Orosi is the oldest church in Costa Rica, but of course I was more concerned about getting some lunch.
After lunch we went to see the wood carver that made the big table at the B & B. What a funky little place he has.
As it was getting late in the day I really wanted to get back to Nick’s place quickly. All I had for my eye protection was my sunglasses and it’s very hard to see once the sun starts going down.
