10 December 2011 | Drakes Bay, Costa Rica
Drakes Bay is our first really calm anchorage in several days. From Quepos south, it was pretty rolly, so we are happy to be in really calm waters and free wifi! Dingy landing is very easy at high tide. One of the hotels here keeps a small dock in the mouth of the river so no wet beach landings for us. Yesterday we saw a 3 foot crocodile swimming just off the dock as we were heading back out to the boat. Today we are hiking the beach route thru the jungle. it winds in and out of coves for all the way down the coast. We only walked about two hours in to a grassy point with swaying palm trees. Right out of the tourist brochures. The rain, however, was not part of the photo shoot, so we headed back a little soggier then we came, but as with everything in the heat, we dried quickly once back in town.
