Dad's on His Way back to Michigan

08 April 2008 | Playa del Coco, Costa Rica

Jim and Dad went ashore around 10 this a,m, and got everything taken care of as much as they could here, to get Dad on his way back home. The bus left at 2, and he will decide once he gets to the airport what mode of transportation from there to Panama he wants to take. It was hard for me to not have everything all laid out for him and ready, but we can't book a ticket from this bus station for the other. Jim had several phone #'s to try, none of them were the right ones, and the one travel agent he located here in Coco was no longer in business. But this is what Dad decided to do, and being closer to Panama there are several bilingual people around to help him out, if needed. It was hard for me to see him leave, he was a big help, although I think he feels he didn't "earn his keep". But he helped us through the most difficult part of the journey, and I am so grateful that he was here, and the kids really enjoyed having him around as well.
