At Playa Carrillo this morning, we came across small turtle tracks, the evidence of hatchlings scrambling towards the surf.
It looks like at least 25 of them foiled the poachers, the dogs, and the vultures to reach the sea.
The other morning on our beach walk, we encountered this little structure.
At first, it looked comfortable enough and kind of clever.
But upon closer inspection we found the artist’s hand.
Hide tides yesterday and today there is no evidence of their efforts.

On the roads in Costa Rica, you never know what you'll run into,

This artist on a Thursday morning presented an entertaining addition to the wide assortment of obstructions usually encountered in El Torito, the village between Casa Mango and Casa Papaya and the beach at Playa Carrillo. One truck driver told me you have to watch for chickens, dogs, and grandmothers there. I hope this gentleman survived the day - his painting looked very nice.

Two of our guests at Casa Mango and Casa Papaya, Ronald Araya Garcia y Jose Joaquin Mora Quiros, won the Soledad in their categories: Open and 60+ respectively. I knew these guys and their compatriots were serious when they arrived with 6 mountain bikes strapped to the roof of 3 matching white sedans. They looked like a winning team.
The Soledad Recorrido event is organized by Ciclo Guilly (the closest approximation in English is “seeclo Weegy” and named after this guy on the right) and returns to Samara /Carrillo twice each year. Throughout the country, Ciclo Guilly holds more than 40 races annually.
