Shuttle Bus to nowhere

Having been here before (Costa Rica) I was looking forward to a relaxed wander through town.  And then we turned  out to be ship #3 in port. There are two berths in town. The commercial port is not either next door or walkable. In fact the only thing you can do after you shuttle from the ship to the port entrance is get on another bus ($15/return) if you want to go to town or go back to the ship.

Not hard to figure out which I chose.

We stop here again on the return journey and I will plan on getting to town regardless. Meanwhile, there is a hot tub in my future after I finish a bit more of the cross-stitch.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    I am jealous! There are numerous abandoned Railway cars and engines over by the highway at the commercial port and they are narrow gauge.
