Today we moved once again a few miles to another anchorage at Isla Jesusita Pretty uneventful except dodging a car ferry that travels across the Gulf of Nicoya, but after Puget sound ferry's are nothing new.
We went ashore at the ferry dock only a mile by dinghy but they had no ice cream only soft drinks so we headed back. On the way back we noticed hundreds of floats along the shore so we went to have a look. It appeared to be some sort of a acqua culture. A man paddles a canoe out to see what we wanted and we asked in our best spanish "What is this?" He proceeded to tell me something about oysters, and high tide and floats and so on. What I have found is I have enough spanish to start a conversation but the Ticans (thats what Costa Ricans are called)speak a little too fast. What I do get is Pura Vida which loosely translates as the good or Pure life. They start or end every conversation with Pura Vida!
Tommorrow we move again to Herradura
