The lack of waves has been tough, but there is light ahead. All reports are showing new swell arriving the 10th and consistent waves for the days following. The forecasts look more like what we’re used to, although we’re not sure if the high pressure in the southern ocean has completely broken down. We’re holding onto the odd hope that maybe we’ll get an extended southern hemi season taking us into November when the off shores should be in full swing again. In the mean time, the fishing has been good. The first fishy you see there was a 25lb Snook taken at the river mouth by a local kid using a hand line and some strip bait. He knew we would buy it, but it looks like he had trouble fitting it in his cooler by the way it’s bent in half. You’ll see in the next pic, our guide Brian, holding a nice snapper that he fished out of the reef out front. He took the paddle board out and was casting a rapala into the whitewash…not a bad catch before the guests are out of bed. The third pic is the “Avatar” tree… supposedly James Cameron was inspired by the Guanacaste tree when he created the screen imagery for the “Home Tree” in the movie “Avatar”. If you note in the bottom left the roadway going past this tree, it will give it some more scale….it’s just about the biggest tree I’ve ever seen in person and it must be around 500 years old!
