(Quepos, Costa Rica)
New Year’s Eve went a little like this…
Our hunter-gathers were sent out shortly after breakfast (read: 11am) to round-up some protein for this evenings feast.
Us less prone to killing launched into a new game. Joker Rummy! (Thanks Delma)
When at the house there was always monkeys to see. Today these white-faced capuchins took to stealing this banana flower. For what we’re not sure. We watched them jump up and down on it for some time.
This guy was a fine lounger.
Out at the boat the fish were plenty. Uncle Wayne was set with the tricky job of cleaning the triggerfish. A fish with skin like that of a rhinos.
No problem here though.
Then there’s this…
Gregory speared an eel and insisted that he was going to cook it up to feed to us all. Uncle Greg’s expression seems to say it all.
On a more appetizing note, they brought home these tasty little pompano.
Potato preparation underway.
Chicken of the Sea!! Triggerfish – tastes just like Chicken McNuggets.
These ladies enjoyed them.
Momma bear taking in the last sunset of 2014.
Back to this…. yuck.
Lucky for all of us it did not fare well on the bbq.
Happy New Year from the crew.
Dad’s hat that is now my new hat.
It was smiles and good vibes all around as the clock counted down to midnight.
Nothing but love.
Then the Heads Up fired up! A wonderful game that pits family members against each other and brings out Gregory’s best lectures about naming animals properly.
Have we mentioned cruiser’s midnight is 9pm? It took a coffee or two to get us through to midnight. Coffee with a scoop of icecream of course.
Auntie Susie and I.
Then the party moved to third story covered deck for the midnight count down.
There was dancing.
Cheers to a great year and an even better one to come!
Daddio and I watching the fireworks.
Did I mention the dancing?
I attempted to teach the flip. Why I volunteered to be the flipper is unknown.
